Description

The beloved, classic, and New York Times-bestselling odd couple Duck & Goose are back, and this time their friendship is put to the test! Duck & Goose, Goose & Duck. Feathered friends forever . . . or are they? You see, there's a challenge to their friendship: a little whippersnapper of a duck named Thistle. Thistle is good at everything (or so she thinks), from math to holding her breath to standing on her head. Duck thinks she's fantastic. But Goose does not! And so Goose is faced with a problem close to the hearts of children everywhere: What happens when your best friend makes a new friend?

PRAISE FOR THE DUCK & GOOSE SERIES: "Duck and Goose have taken their places alongside Frog and Toad and George and Martha as fine examples of friendship, curiosity and problem-solving."--Kirkus Reviews

"Charming, funny, simple, and surprising. . . . Hills is master of the light comic touch."--The Boston Globe

Our customer reviews

My kids and I giggled our way through DUCK & GOOSE, Tad Hills' first book starring these two lovable characters. With DUCK, DUCK, GOOSE, our favorite quacker and honker are back -- but this time there's another character thrown into the mix, and three is most definitely a crowd. Duck is very excited to introduce Thistle, the new duck who just moved into the area, to his best friend Goose. And, at first, Goose is just as happy to meet this new duck. That is, until Goose soon learns that Thistle is the best at everything, and I mean everything! She's the fastest, she's the best at math, she's had three butterflies land on her bill at the same time (compared to Goose's one), she can hold her breath the longest, run up the hill the fastest, and...well, the list goes on and on. Goose learns very quickly that Thistle is the best, and that no one else can ever hope to measure up. And yet he's tired of everything always being turned into a contest. So he has no choice but to leave Duck and Thistle to their own devices and rest, by himself, behind his and Duck's favorite bush. DUCK, DUCK, GOOSE is a wonderful book, about meeting new people, the spirit of competition, and the true meaning of friendship. Both toddlers and older readers will be enchanted, once again, by Tad Hills' brilliant illustrations, and the story will have them alternately laughing-out-loud and commiserating with how left out and lonely Goose feels. This one is another winner, and definitely deserves a place on your keeper shelf!show more
