Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This rhymed story begins with gosling Lucy living comfortably and safely inside her shell, but then her shell cracks and she is out in the world along with her three brothers and one sister. Her mother teaches them all how to find food and how to swim, but Lucy's attention wanders and she does things on her own. Then, one day her mother tells the goslings that the weather will be getting cold, so they will all head down to Texas. She explains how they should all stick together but Lucy ignores that advice. Lucy convinces herself that she will be better off flying alone. She refuses to join in the vee. Lucy soon finds that flying alone can be lonely and frightening, but the other geese turn up just in time to save her. The illustrations enhance the story, exhibiting a love of, and appreciation for, nature. 2006, Starseed Press, Ages 4 to 7.

Meet the Author

Holly Bea was inspired to write her first children's book following the birth of her first niece, Katie. The resulting classic spiritual tale, Where Does God Live?, has touched the heart of tens of thousands of children and their parents. In 2002 the book won the Bock Book Award. A graduate of Texas Tech University, Holly has been an advertising copywriter for agencies in Dallas, Houston, Chicago, Silicon Valley, and Tampa. Born in Hawaii and raised in Texas, Holly now lives in Dallas with her husband, Steve, their Sheltie named Lizzie and their goofy Bullmastiff, Buddy. She is the winner of the 2001 Helen Keating Ott Award for outstanding contributions to children's literature from the Church and Synagogue Library Association.

Joe Boddy now lives in Missoula, Montana. He spent much of his youth wandering the willow patches and aspen groves that line a small mountain stream called Sourdough Creek. Growing up, his work included fencing, irrigating, milking, haying, and tending to livestock. Time away from school and chores was filled with hunting, fishing, drawing, and painting. His love of the Bridger Mountains, the Spanish Peaks, and all the wild creatures that inhabit them was only matched by his love of art. While earning his degree in fine art from Montana State University Joe met and married his very talented and lifelong sweetheart, Marlys. As full time professional artists they have worked together to build a home and studio in the foothills of the Bitterroot Mountains where they often quietly watch baby Canada Geese once they are out in the water. As happy grandparents, they are more dedicated than ever to each other, their art, travel, reading, children, and grandchildren.
