Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

TAD HILLS is the author and illustrator of the highly acclaimed New York Times bestselling picture books How Rocket Learned to Read, Rocket Writes a Story, Duck & Goose, and Duck, Duck, Goose. His board books include the ALA-ALSC Notable Children's Book What's Up, Duck?; Duck & Goose: It's Time for Christmas; and, most recently, Duck & Goose: Goose Needs a Hug. Tad lives in Brooklyn with his wife, their two children, and a real dog named Rocket.

Review:

"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."

About the Author

In this delightful follow-up to the New York Times bestselling Duck & Goose and Duck, Duck, Goose, Duck wants to go on an adventure. Goose doesn't. He doesn't see the point. After all, why would they go anywhere when they're happy right where they are? But then Goose sees the ocean and loves it. Who doesn't? Well, Duck, for one!
