Publisher Comments:

BooBoo is a curious blue gosling who likes to eat. She likes to eat everything. Well, almost everything. This simple story of silliness and curiosity, with its expressive illustrations and childlike gosling characters, shines as a new Level 1 Greenand#160;Light Reader. This is just the right book for young readers who are beginning to decode stories on their own.

Features a bonus audio book download so kids can listen and read along. Look for the rest of the GossieandFriends early reader editions!

Review:

"To his fetching flock of goslings (Gossie & Gertie; Ollie) Dunrea adds two welcome and worthy feathered friends. Each of these tiny creatures, like their predecessors, has a distinct personality and a penchant for doing something that will spark recognition in adults and youngsters alike. 'Peedie forgets things. Even when Mama Goose reminds him.' And BooBoo is a curious blue gosling who 'likes to eat from morning till night. Every day.' There is one thing that Peedie never forgets, however: to wear his lucky red baseball cap. Well, almost never. When one day he puts the hat in a 'secret place' but forgets where, his search for it turns up some endearing images: only the gosling's webbed feet stick up as he looks in the pond; and again, only his bottom half is visible as he searches under a flower pot. BooBoo's insatiable appetite compels her to visit other farm animals and sample their rations, each time announcing, with kid-pleasing repetition, 'Good food.' But she discovers that she likes to eat almost but not quite 'everything' after swallowing a soap bubble, which results in a comical succession of burps, and a burst of bubbles. Dunrea's simply charming ink-and-watercolor art reveals an endearing supporting cast of diminutive critters (turtle, spider, snail) observing the goslings' antics. In what may be a good omen for fans of this growing gang, Peedie finds his lost cap atop a gosling egg. Ages 2-5." Publishers Weekly (Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information, Inc.)
