Storyline

A little girl named Capable fights off a daily invasion of Gappers, bright orange, multi-eyed creatures that love goats so much that they attach themselves to them and prevent them from giving milk. When the Gappers target Capable's goats, her town's only two neighboring families (it's a small town) turn their backs on Capable and her widowed father, leaving the heroine to fend for herself against the pesky creatures. In trying to save herself, she goes on a journey of discovery, learning invaluable lessons about community and compassion.
