A goat and a hen turn a playful exploration of physics into scientific fun that rises to the top!
Archie the Goat has a delivery to make. He has several barrels of buttermilk that the queen needs, but in order to get them to her, he needs to cross the moat.
Testing several different theories to find out what will float and what will sink, Archie and his friend Skinny the Hen don’t succeed at first, but they do try, try, try again (and again). And with reason and persistence, they’ll get that buttermilk where it needs to be!

"A highly enjoyable read-aloud whose characters are both eccentric and loveable."
"A goofy romp that will fit right in with elementary school science lessons."
"This gem tells a fun, slapstick story while teaching the basic physics of buoyancy and Archimedess principle. This story will liven up any science class and also hold its own as a spirited pleasure read."
