Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Roger Duvoisin first introduced children to his proud and silly goose, Petunia, in 1950, it was love at first sight. Those children have grown up, but Petunia is every bit as fresh and funny and muddled as the day she was born.

In this, the first of the series of classic books featuring the silly goose, Petunia finds a book--and, deciding that if she owns a book she must be wise, dispenses hilariously mistaken advice to the other animals in the farmyard.

With its gentle lesson and the kind of humor that kids love best, this new edition of a picture book classic will delight and inspire a whole new generation of readers.

About the Author

Roger Duvoisin was born in Geneva, Switzerland, in 1904 and came to the U.S.A. in 1925. Among his more than 40 children's books, he is best known for those featuring Veronica, the conspicuous hippopotamus, and Petunia, the silly goose. He received the Caldecott Medal in 1947 for White Snow, Bright Snow and a Caldecott Honor in 1966. He died in 1980.

The last time I ever seen or read this childrens novel was back in elementary school at Grant in Livonia, Michigan, while I was a child. I must of checked this book out 10 times plus.

Would enjoy reading this book to my daughter, if, I could locate one.
