Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Dunrea successfully adds to the ‘Gossie and Gertie’ cast with these endearing tales.” School Library Journal, Starred

“With their simple watercolors and narrative, along with diminutive heroes who assert a budding independence, these tales demonstrate once again how well their creator knows his audience.” Publishers Weekly, Starred

"Pre-schoolers will relate to Ollie's point of view and delight in his humorous reactions to the new world he's discovering." Booklist, ALA

“Dunrea’s keen awareness of young children’s concerns and quirks translates into charmingly simple illustrations and text.” Kirkus Reviews

"Dunrea's text...is packed with toddler-sized drama, and Gossie and Gertie easily assume the roles of older sisters dealing with a pesky but beloved younger brother." Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"...the geese tromp, stomp, romp and jump around the farmyard in a way that is quite satisfying when read aloud." The New York Times Book Review

    Not made for the NOOK COLOR.

    Disapointing, because the first title (Gossie) in this series was formatted for the N.C. but this and the rest of this series IS NOT. Price of this is not worth the cut-off pages and in these the illustrations so wonderful in print and the first title are severely lacking. Wont be purchasing any more.

    Ollie is great

    I love all the books with Gossie, and Gertie in them and now with Ollie. I read them to my gradchildren and my daycare kids. They love them and ask for those books!!

    The Best Series for Infants and Toddlers

    My son has always loved these books! He was interested in them when he was an infant and now as a toddler. He says words he may not have learned in other books...like snail, mole, bee and of course the characters names. It also helped with animal sounds and opposites. We hope to see new characters and books come out in this series!
