Publisher Comments:

Meet Gemma and Gus, the newest additions to Olivier Dunreaand#8217;s irresistable barnyard gaggle! Gemma is the big sister. Gus is the little brother. Gus is always following Gemma around, but one day Gus sets out on his own . . . and Gemma follows him! Whatand#160;do can these two yellow goslings learn from one another?
and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160; Another pair of darling goslings make theirand#160;debut in this sweet story, with Olivier Dunreaand#8217;s perfectly pitched storytelling and illustrations that Gossie and Friends fans have come to cherish.

Review:

"Dipping into the grassy, blossoming palette of his My Garden, Henkes depicts a bunny's spring day. His sequence salutes Margaret Wise Brown and Clement Hurd's classic The Runaway Bunny, for this little white rabbit also has a good imagination. 'When he hopped through the high grass, he wondered what it would be like to be green,' and 'When he hopped by the fir trees, he wondered what it would be like to be tall.' Each time the rabbit ponders another way of life, a wordless spread follows, picturing him camouflaged, tree-height, or transformed into a stone bunny for an entire day. Spying a cat, the bunny darts home to nuzzle a mother rabbit (also reminiscent of Brown and Hurd's): 'he didn't wonder who loved him.' In Henkes's colored pencil and acrylic closeups of the young rabbit, a moss-green outline and typeface (rather than a neutral black or brown) suggest verdant meadows and warm forests. Cool pink, soft blue, and dandelion yellow wildflowers will remind some of an Easter basket. Sweet and soft, this picture book heralds a sunny spring. Ages 2 — 7. (Feb.)"

Tiny rabbit dreams of growing as big as the forest and as tall as the trees,and#160;yet no matter how hard he wishes, he stays the same small size. But in a jungle filled with beasts both big and small, perhaps being tiny is just right!
