    be good with sb

    Circus Days Again (by Enid Blyton) contains this sentence:

    All animals are good with you.

    Could we rewrite the sentence as 'All animals are good to you'? And any difference between the two sentences?

    Thank you very much.

    I think the original sentence is fine. "Be good with" means behave well so the animals are good with you implies that they will not be dangerous; they will be fun to be around. You may enjoy their company.
    Hope this helps a bit.
