Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
It is hard to imagine how Tad Hills can convey so much emotion through his charming but simply drawn characters—duck and goose. There is no doubt about the emotions—duck is proud when his stick structure stands tall and Goose is frustrated when his is just a pile of sticks. The two cling together one with eyes wide open and the other with them squeezed shut as a thunder and lightening storm rages. Duck's bill is practically dragging on the ground as he sadly walks along. The flowers droop and the sky is filled with gray clouds which all emphasize his mood. But not to fear, on the next page, the delightful duo is shown dancing with the butterflies on a bright sunny day. The flowers are now all open and pointed toward the sky as if to echo the joy the two are experiencing. The range of emotions ends on a loving note. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot

PreS

Duck and Goose return in this almost wordless board book. Each spread features a feeling or two as the adorable duo interact. The portrayals of simple emotions-scared, happy, and sad-are most successful. But those that are more subtle-selfish, patient, hopeful, frustrated-may be too complex for a toddler audience, and the facial expressions barely have the range to convey them. The simple, colorful art with the antic and irascible title characters will be the biggest draw.-Marge Loch-Wouters, La Crosse Public Library, WI
