Oh! What a Surprise! (Bear and Goose Stories)by Suzanne Bloom
Synopses & Reviews
Goose and Bear are making surprises for each other. But what about Fox? She is hoping beyond hope that one of the presents is for her. But what if it isn't? Even though her hope may turn to disappointment, Fox throws herself into making a surprise for her friends. When the time comes to exchange gifts, Fox is overjoyed to discover that Goose and Bear haven't forgotten her after all. Suzanne Bloom's endearing story helps children understand that remembering friends is what good friends do. According to School Library Journal, "Lovable odd couples are a staple of children's books on friendship, and Bloom's Bear and Goose are among the most memorable."
Bear and Goose are back. And they have a new friend--Fox. It's playtime and Bear and Goose are having fun. Then little Fox joins in and somebody gets left out. Somebody's feelings are hurt. Who will fix the friendship? As this gentle story shows, the solution lies in including friends, not excluding them. As in her previous Bear and Goose stories, Suzanne Bloom's latest book deals with a familiar aspect of friendship: being left out. This is the third book in Suzanne Bloom's endearing series about these characters and the first to feature Fox.
Sometimes a box is not an ordinary box. In this instance, an aardvark named Grant and an armadillo named Antoine see its potential for something magnificent: a time machine! Under the supervision of their friend Samantha, an anteater, they cobble together a bunch of thingamabobs and hoozie-doozies to turn the empty box into a marvelous device for traveling through time. Can three adventurers actually turn back the clock? Suzanne Bloom's comical story features three endearing characters with vivid imaginations.
