Duck & Goose Go to the Beachby Tad Hills
Synopses & Reviews
Fans of Max and Ruby and Ladybug Girl will love spending a day at the beach with Caterina!
Caterina is a little brown bird with a penchant for planning, so when she and her little brother, Leo, spend the day at the beach, she makes sure to bring along everything theyll need to have a perfect summer day. Leos dearest wish is to see a whale, but even Caterina knows that no one can plan that kind of awesome encounter. But soon, Leo spies something big and gray in the water. Can he convince Caterina to leave the plan behind and chase the whale with him?
Fans of the first two books will recognize Caterina's signature focus, and cheer when Leo takes the lead in this summertime adventure.
"For homebodyish sorts, traveling somewhere new can be daunting; for the adventurous, destinations don't always meet expectations. Hills uses longtime buddies Duck and Goose to make both points, as Goose's reluctance about going on an 'adventure' gives way to awe when he takes in the beach for the first time ('Isn't it magnificent?'). Meanwhile, Duck, who has led the charge, is not quite as taken with the too-hot sand, daunting water, and colossal waves that send the friends tumbling head over heels in one memorable scene. Hills's oil paintings provide a breezy backdrop of grass, sand, sea, and sky for Duck and Goose's every relatable anxiety, discovery, and interaction. Ages 3 — 7."
