Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Eleanor Heldrich
This is a bulky, play-action book for children that is quite heavy to handle and, unfortunately the copy I examined also had some problems with its movables. The story is simple and pleasing. The main character is Gossie a young gosling who is playing hide-and-seek with her brothers and sisters. When the reader pulls out a tab, which is substantial and a little difficult to pull, Gertie is found hiding in a pumpkin patch. A second easier-to-pull tab reveals Peedie in a boat. A push-in tab finds BooBoo in the birdbath, but where is Ollie? Six pages later Olllie is found sleeping in a wreath, which is hanging from a tree. A pull-tab should make him swing back and forth, but the tab is backed up tightly against the last page in the book and cannot be moved. The pages in between have a scratch-and-sniff, a squeeze and squeak patch that does not make a noise, several working pull tabs, textures to be touched, and a wheel that works for both sides of a page. There is also an attractive game board with punch-out game pieces at the end of the book. Too heavy for young children to manage on their own and with movables that are not easy to move, this book, with its possible problems should be purchased from a dealer who will return it to the publisher for replacement if your copy has flaws.
