Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Two geese sisters the sensible, responsible Dorothy and the mercurial, vain Sadie turn a raft into a showboat for Sadie's singing talents, and set off down the Wriggle River for a series of performances. The trip ultimately reinforces the duo's bonds of affection, but the narrative lingers on Sadie's grating flamboyance she wears glamorous cats-eye sunglasses and calls her favorite hat "The Green Beret Of Much Loveliness And High Degree Of Style" (which, after a dousing in the river, becomes "A Green Beret Of Much Wetness And High Degree Of Sogginess"). The schoolmarmish Dorothy, meanwhile, remains defined mostly by her reactions to her diva sister: she sighs, placates and solves problems, thus ensuring that Sadie ends the book with a boffo performance by moonlight and candlelight (the music for her signature song, "Listen Up, Moon," can be found on the back of the book). Wordy though the narrative may be, Jackson gets plenty of comic mileage from his rendering of the sisters' beaky countenances and elongated necks. The shimmery blue, green and yellow watercolors bring alive the lazy loveliness of his riparian setting. Ages 4-6. (Sept.) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-The Gaggle Sisters' story is told in four segments as the two geese raft along a river, all the while preparing banners and backdrop for their music concert. Dorothy is a plugger who handles costumes, scenery, and accordion playing with polite diligence, while songstress Sadie's self-absorption is balanced by her travails with her hat, "The Green Beret Of Much Loveliness And High Degree Of Style." Jackson's humor excels when he counters formal turns of phrase with mild sarcasm. Cartoon watercolors provide superb characterizations in regrettably washed-out hues, and endpaper maps of the journey add to the fun.-Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
A prima donna goose who practically defines pomposity gets a glimmering that her entourage of one—her sister—may well be indispensable to her success. The Gaggle Sisters are launching their river tour, for which Sadie will sing and Dorothy will accompany on accordion. While Sadie makes sure she gets her beauty rest and has time for Deep Thoughts, Dorothy will pack the raft, paint the backdrop, and minister to Her Holiness. When small problems arise and Sadie throws one of her hissy fits, Dorothy will find ingenious solutions while maintaining an abiding sense of humor (well, nearly limitless). Sadie will take the credit. And when Sadie’s coveted "Green Beret of Much Loveliness and High Degree of Style" gets dunked in the drink, becoming "A Green Beret of Much Wetness and High Degree of Sogginess," nearly ruining everything, everything, everything for Sadie, it’s Dorothy who concocts an artful solution to the problem. The kooky, droll watercolors are a decided plus, but it is the dryly humorous, theatrical text that keeps the story going strong to the end, as readers applaud Dorothy’s saintly patience and try to figure a way to reach into the pages to strangle Sadie. (Picture book. 4-6)
