All a-flutter, she tries to borrow a pair of ears from her friends, but none of them are the right size. Then Goose meets Peacock, who just happens to be selling ears. What luck! Goose is so excited she doesn't notice Peacock's pointy ears, his bushy tail and his sharp, sharp teeth. Can Goose's friends save her from this terrible trick? From the author of the Book Sense Children's Pick, While Angels Watch, and the illustrator of the #1 New York Times bestseller, Me and My Dad!

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

K-Gr 2- Fox is hungry, and so begins his elaborate plan for a delicious dinner. He convinces Goose that she has no ears. She asks her friends for theirs, and even asks Fox for his, but to no avail. Then, out of the blue, Goose hears the siren song of Peacock announcing, "Ears for sale! Get your ears from Peacock's shop!" She fails to notice the bird's pointy snout, sharp teeth, and red tail as she follows him inside. Too late, Goose realizes she can hear, so she must have ears. Then, just as Fox reveals his dinner plans, Goose's sharp-eyed friends come to the rescue. This enjoyable story has just the right mixture of humor, friendship, and suspense. The text is aptly accompanied by Edgson's soft color illustrations; good detail and great expressions bring the characters to life. This delightful, if slightly familiar, tale is well written, perfectly illustrated, and a joy to read aloud. But it does beg the question, where are Goose's ears?-Catherine Callegari, Gay-Kimball Library, Troy, NH
