Duck and Gooseby Tad Hills
Synopses & Reviews
“That egg is mine! I saw it first,” says Goose. “I touched it first. It’s mine,” declares Duck. Like James Marshall’s George and Martha, and Rosemary Wells’s Benjamin and Tulip, Duck and Goose have to work at getting along. You see, Duck doesn’t much care for Goose at first–and Goose isn’t fond of Duck–but both want the egg that each claims to be his. As the two tend to their egg, and make plans for the future, they come to appreciate one another’s strengths. And when a bluebird points out that it isn’t really an egg–it’s a polka dot ball–the two are not dismayed. After all, it is a lovely ball. . . .Filled with humor that young children will appreciate–and recognize!–and starring two unforgettable characters, Duck & Goose has all the ingredients of a classic-in-the-making.
When they come across a polka dot ball in a field, Duck and Goose claim the "egg" as their own and decide not to share it with one another, but after long conversations about their plans for their special find, the temperamental duo end up appreciating each other's creativity and become friends in the end.
Duck and Goose learn to work together to take care of a ball, which they think is an egg.
