Dunrea's simply charming ink-and-watercolor art reveals an endearing cast of diminutive critters.
It is the cleanly designed and sometimes humorous ink-and-water-color artwork that gives these small books their irresistable charm.
The ink-and-watercolor illustrations are as simple as the text, and small children will recognize and related to each story's tiny arc and resolution.
Dunrea's feathered characters have the look and feel of preschoolers rapt in their own discovery of the world.

BooBoo is a little gosling and is a lovely shade of blue. She seems to be insatiable because she eats everything in sight. She eats all the food in her own bowl and then makes the rounds enjoying food from the other animals' dishes. Her favorite expression after tasting and consuming everything in sight is, "Good food." She is a marvel because even with all that food she is still a tiny little goose. One day while swimming in the pond and eating some tasty weeds, BooBoo spots some bubbles. She swallows one and then she starts to burp and when she does, bubbles appear. Her friend the turtle advises that she drink a lot of water and then she only burps one very tiny blue bubble. And what does BooBoo say? "Good food," of course. The story is cute, but the closing scene might give kids some food for thought as she stares up at a bees' nest, which might prove to be a not so tasty treat. The simple illustrations set on crisp white pages are a delight. BooBoo is a very appealing little gosling and the story and repetitive text will delight young listeners. Recently reissued.
