KIRKUS REVIEW

Rhyme (printed in prose lines) and no reason. The Allegheny goose who pulls Sara and her granny in an oyster shell chariot becomes a groodle after eating strudel and argues that ""the world is flat and filled with sauerkraut"" before he takes off with the old lady and Sara wakes up. A granny with a cape of noodles and strudels sounds delectable but instead of tasty fantasy this is just a meaningless series of tidbits, and the overbright illustrations are no support -- they don't even portray what's indicated.
