Why does Al Johnson's Have Goats on the Roof?

Sister Bay, Wisconsin. Jody Littler grew up in a charming community in Door County. One of the popular landmarks of this beautiful northeast Wisconsin peninsula is Al Johnson's Swedish Restaurant and Butik with its famous goats on the grass roof. Jody has fond childhood memories of eating at Al Johnson's, and she has worked there for the last eleven years. Drawing from her own experiences, she wanted to write a story to answer many of the questions visitors have about the tradition of goats on the roof. The Little Goat On The Roof is a delightful tale told through the eyes of a little goat.
