Littler, who grew up in Wisconsin and ate at Al Johnson’s grassed-roof restaurant, had the same fantasies about goats on a roof as many other children. For non-Midwesterners, Al Johnson’s is a famous Swedish Restaurant and Butik in Door County, and there really are goats grazing on the roof.
Goats on a roof is a theme in several old folk tales, but this one is about a goat named DeeCee who climbs around Johnson’s restaurant. And like most goats, this one does not stay still or stay where he should. Enjoy the adventures of DeeCee, and put Al Johnson’s on your list for a family vacation. Illustrated by Jan Jablonski also of Door County.
