More reassuring magic from Sam McBratney, creator of the acclaimed GUESS HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU.
Little Goosey and Big Gander Goose are out walking by the river. When a storm approaches, they must find a warm, dry place to shelter them. But another small animal has claimed each of the nooks and crannies they try, and Little Goosey doesn't want to hide with anyone but Big Gander Goose. Small children will know just how Little Goosey feels, and will be comforted by Big Gander Goose's understanding approach.

About the Author
Ivan Bates debuted as an illustrator with his art for Sam McBratney's THE DARK AT THE TOP OF THE STAIRS, which Booklist, in a starred review, called "appealing" and PUBLISHERS WEEKLY deemed "endearing." Of JUST YOU AND ME, he says, "I had to spend a lot of time with geese. It was rather like guerrilla warfare. I had to stay well away from them, hiding in the bushes, or they would hiss at me. I had to take my photographs with a very long lens."

A charming read; with soft subtle illustrations. A simple story which shows the care of the gander and the gosling for each other and the kindness shown by the other woodland animals they meet on their journey.
