Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This delightful sequel to Caldecott Medalist Roger Duvoisin's Petunia takes the foolish goose on a wild goose chase. Petunia only wants what she doesn't have. Convinced that she'll find tastier grass for her snacks beyond her home on Mr. Pumpkin's farm, she ventures far afield. After close encounters with some wild animals who are looking for a tasty snack of their own, she rushes home—to the best green grass she's ever tasted! Originally published in 1958 and long unavailable, this timeless tale works equally well as a read-aloud to young children or as a story slightly older children can enjoy reading all by themselves.

About the Author

ROGER DUVOISIN was born in Switzerland in 1904 and came to the United States in 1925. He wrote and illustrated many highly acclaimed children's books, most notably the picture books about Petunia, the silly goose, and Veronica, the very conspicuous hippo. He also illustrated 10 books about the Happy Lion, written by his wife Louise Fatio. He was awarded the Caldecott Medal for White Snow, Bright Snow and a Caldecott Honor for Hide and Seek Fog, both by Alvin Tresselt. He died in 1980.
