Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
To his fetching flock of goslings (Gossie & Gertie; Ollie) Dunrea adds two welcome and worthy feathered friends. Each of these tiny creatures, like their predecessors, has a distinct personality and a penchant for doing something that will spark recognition in adults and youngsters alike. "Peedie forgets things. Even when Mama Goose reminds him." And BooBoo is a curious blue gosling who "likes to eat from morning till night. Every day." There is one thing that Peedie never forgets, however: to wear his lucky red baseball cap. Well, almost never. When one day he puts the hat in a "secret place" but forgets where, his search for it turns up some endearing images: only the gosling's webbed feet stick up as he looks in the pond; and again, only his bottom half is visible as he searches under a flower pot. BooBoo's insatiable appetite compels her to visit other farm animals and sample their rations, each time announcing, with kid-pleasing repetition, "Good food." But she discovers that she likes to eat almost but not quite "everything" after swallowing a soap bubble, which results in a comical succession of burps, and a burst of bubbles. Dunrea's simply charming ink-and-watercolor art reveals an endearing supporting cast of diminutive critters (turtle, spider, snail) observing the goslings' antics. In what may be a good omen for fans of this growing gang, Peedie finds his lost cap atop a gosling egg. Ages 2-5. (Aug.) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
AGERANGE: Ages 3 mo. to 3.

Peedie is a little gosling and is a lovely shade of yellow. Peedie finds so much in this world that interests him that he forgets to do some of the things that are expected of him--such as eating all his food, cleaning up his nest, and even coming in out of the rain. As the illustrations show, Peedie never goes anywhere without his red baseball cap. Well, one day, the worst thing that could ever happen to little Peedie does happen. He put his baseball cap in a secret place and cannot remember where it is. Oh, the consternation as he searches in the haystack, pond, flowerpot, and tall grass. Then Mama Goose asks Peedie if he forgot to turn the egg. He trudges back, despondent at the loss of his favorite red cap. And what does he spy--the cap perched on top of the egg. The simple illustrations set on crisp white pages are a delight, especially the scenes where Peedie is searching for his baseball cap. Peedie is a very appealing little gosling and the story and repetitive text will delight young listeners. Now the story has been reissued and will be just right for all those little ones that you know. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-A new twosome joins Dunrea's gaggle of geese stories. BooBoo will eat anything and everything-from the contents of her own plate to the chicken's grain to weeds, all to the refrain of "Good food." When she ingests a bubble that floats above the pond, she can't stop burping until she sips a bit of water and proclaims, "Good food." The last picture shows her reaching her beak toward a beehive. Peedie is easily distracted and, therefore, a forgetful gosling. His lucky red baseball cap is the only thing he consistently remembers until he decides to put it in a secret place and temporarily loses it. His search results in a happy ending. Though perhaps not as strongly plotted as Gossie and Gossie and Gertie (both Houghton, 2002), these offerings still share a winsome sensibility that invites audiences to delight in the fowls' antics. The simple artwork features plenty of white space, bright colors, and a clean line that attracts the eye. Dunrea's feathered characters have the look and feel of preschoolers rapt in their own discovery of the world. The texts have short sentences, repetition, and a rhythm that make them just right for even the youngest toddlers.-Marge Loch-Wouters, Menasha's Public Library, WI Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

    The Best Series for Babies 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!

    My two-year old cannot get enough of this book! My 4-year old understands the patterns well enough that he can read it to her as well. Dunrea is a fabulous children's author. I recommend all of the books in this series-- happy reading!
