The Nanny Goat's Kid

The Nanny Goat wants kids more than anything in the world. When she can't have any of her own, she adopts one instead, but he's different to the others. One by one, the other kids start to go missing, and everyone blames the Nanny Goat's Kid. Has he really eaten them? Or are the others just trying to make a scapegoat out of him?
