PETUNIA, BEWARE! by Roger Duvoisin
Kirkus Star


Email this review


Another delightful interlude with that silly goose, Petunia. A firm believer that the grass is greener on the other side of home, Petunia intrepidly wanders off to the hill top where, not only is the grass parched and dry, but where at every step a hungry animal eyes Petunia thinking that she would make a more than ample dinner. Petunia's predicament turns out to be a treat for the reader as it includes him in an adventure through Roger Duvoisin's green, green fields, brilliantly alive with colored growing things, and with a whole repertoire of utterly beguiling animals. Suspense, wisdom, and warm humor--a must.
