KIRKUS REVIEW

Dunrea adds to his almost-twee goose adventures with Peedie, a small yellow gosling and BooBoo, a small blue gosling. Peedie wears a red baseball cap—everywhere. He might forget to tidy his nest or turn the egg, but he never forgets his cap. Until, one day, he does. He searches for it everywhere—in the tall grass, under the flowerpot—but only finds it when Mama Goose reminds him about the egg once more. BooBoo likes to eat, and she nibbles from her own food bowl—and the mouse’s and the goat’s. She even tastes the weeds. But when she swallows some soap bubbles, much burping ensues. She’s rescued by the turtle, who exhorts her to drink lots of water. The ink-and-watercolor illustrations are as simple as the text, and small children will recognize and relate to each story’s tiny arc and resolution. (Picture book. 3-7)
