Description

The New York Times bestselling and award winning Duck & Goose is now a board book! A must have this Easter for every child's library! At long last, the classic New York Times-bestselling and award-winning Duck & Goose is available as a board book. It's a must-have for every child's home library. Meet Duck and Goose, two birds who mistake a polka-dotted ball for an egg and must master the art of cooperation--and sharing--to take care of it. But friendship is not always easy, as proved in this funny, accessible story. Children will instantly recognize themselves in these adorable and eternally optimistic characters. And with an abridged text, this board-book version of the original is perfect for the youngest Duck & Goose fans. 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
