KIRKUS REVIEW

The MacGooses are real geese and Mrs. MacGoose, as she sits in the store, also sits on her egg. Then Mrs. MacGoose gets tired, puts Mr. MacGoose in charge, and goes for a walk. He gets tired, puts Junior in charge, and goes for a walk. Junior gets tired and puts Sis in charge, and she goes off leaving the egg in charge. While they are gone some playful weasels come in and make a mess, and there is much passing of blame on the family's return; but then the egg hatches ""and they all went for a walk."" Good-natured nonsense, with a typical Marshall family on stage (Junior comes with a propeller-beanie and a pinwheel on a stick) and the unhatched egg performing a few turns on the side.
