Here is the first book in the popular Duck & Goose line of picture books and board books. This New York Times Bestseller and ALA-ALSC Notable Children's Book stars two unforgettable characters and is filled with humor that young children will appreciate—and recognize!

Like James Marshall’s George and Martha, and Rosemary Wells’s Benjamin and Tulip, Duck and Goose have to work at getting along. You see, Duck doesn’t much care for Goose at first, and Goose isn’t fond of Duck. But both want the egg that each claims to be his. As the two tend to their egg, and make plans for the future, they come to appreciate one another’s strengths. And when a bluebird points out that it isn’t really an egg—it’s a polka dot ball—the two are not dismayed. After all, it is a lovely ball. . . .

My children and I LOVE this book, but it is way to expensive to buy as an ebook

Well worth the purchase - adorable story, endearing characters, and it's a read-to-me :) Don't regret this Nookbook purchase at all!

This is such a cute book. I purchased for my Nook Color, for the Read to Me function. I am very disappointed that I paid such good money, when the Read to Me part of the book is horrible. It would be great if they would republish it with a story-teller who knows what they are doing. The story-teller is so slow, un-animated, that my kids lose interest within the first couple of pages.

This book is a great example of a witty fantasy. As the personified duck and goose bicker about what is inside of a new-found egg, they realize that their bickering does not take them far. The author accurately portrayed what many young individuals must feel as they can become jealous and selfish through life situations. However, they both learn their lesson that being selfish does not help to resolve any situation. Young readers will enjoy the humor and reality of the book , as they also learn an important life lesson.Age Appropriateness: PrimaryPlot: The plot in this story is very engaging, and it raises an important life lesson for all individuals.Media: Oil Paint

Duck and Goose come across an egg laying in the grass. They end up fighting over this giant egg. When the egg turns out to be a ball, they quickly learn how to play with it together.

This is a super cute book! the art is fantastic for the storyline, and any kid (and adult for that matter) would enjoy reading it for what ever reason. the story is cute in that it made me go back to a time when the kind of attitude demonstrated in the book was common occurrence...especially at recess! Again the art was perfect for the writing, hens a good picture book almost always seems to be those where the writer and illustrator are the same person.

This book is about a duck and a goose who find a ball and think it is an egg. They argue about whose it is and then they learn to share it and take care of the egg together. In the end they are surprised to find out that their egg is actually a ball. I think that this was a very creative and fun story that kids will enjoy.

This story about a duck and goose who argue about an egg, and who is going to take care of it and how it got there.

I loved this picture book! It was very cute. I could see myself reading this to the kindgartners and first graders. A little duck and goose find what they think is an egg and they fight over who the "egg" belongs to. It isn't until they are approached by a little blue bird who wants to play with their ball that they discover the truth about their "egg".

Reviewed by Me for Kids @ TeensReadToo.comWhen young duck and goose find a large, multi-colored, spotted "egg," bickering ensues. "I saw it first," proclaims Duck. "I touched it first," smirks Goose, putting one webbed foot on the egg. As the argument continues, over whose egg it is, and who will keep it warm until it hatches, a small blue bird looks on.When the dust settles and feathers are unruffled, both Duck & Goose are atop the egg. As time passes, their arguments end, and they both begin to think of what they'll teach "their" little baby. "I'll teach it to quack like a duck," says Duck. "I'll teach it to honk like a goose," says Goose. "We'll teach it to fly," they both agree. And a tentative friendship is born.Until that same little blue bird flies down to ask to join in their fun--asks, in fact, if she can play with their ball. "Ball?" they ask. "Well, of course we knew it was a ball. We had our doubts all along!"This is a funny, delightful book with beautiful illustrations that any child can enjoy. A perfect bedtime story!
