Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-K—Beloved Duck and Goose star in yet another adventure that cements their friendship. Goose is cautious and less adventuresome than Duck. "Let's go away," says Duck. "Sounds like a fine way to twist your ankle," replies Goose. Yet because they are friends, they both hike to the beach. Each illustration, done in rich, glorious colors, is a delight. Especially notable is the humorous page on which a huge wave wipes them out, covering Duck in seaweed. Hills employs excellent vocabulary-stretching words, with "magnificent" and "loud" to describe the vast expanse of sky, sand, and sea. There is so much expression in just the eyes of these characters that children can't help but smile. As the story reaches a satisfying conclusion, they will proclaim this tale a winner.—Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA

From Booklist

Duck and Goose have shared and squabbled through a long series of picture and board books, each time delivering a comic reflection of children’s friendships. In this, their tenth go-round, they’re both happily at rest in a butterfly-dotted meadow until Goose says, “Let’s never leave.” To which, of course, Duck responds, “Let’s leave,” racing off. Goose is very reluctant to move and keeps up a constant argument about the wisdom of just staying put. Duck manages to get them both to the beach, and in a nifty reversal, it’s Goose who now reigns, reveling in the waves, the new creatures they meet, and the seashell-filled tidal pool, while Duck just gets his feathers ruffled by everything. Hills’ illustrations are rendered in bright oil paints that capture meadow and sea with equal vivacity. Duck and Goose, of course, are their usual comically at-odds selves, this time nicely illustrating the benefits of both adventurous and cautious personalities. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Connie Fletcher

Format: Hardcover
‘Duck & Goose Go to the Beach’ written and illustrated by Tad Hills is a story of friendship, one exciting adventure, of routines and expectations that are often barriers to new beautiful discoveries.

Duck and Goose are two best friends who love their meadow the most in the world. When one day Duck will suggests an adventure – leaving their meadow for a trip - Goose will not be too much happy about that idea.

In the end he will decide to go with Duck and they will walk all the way to the beach where Duck will excitedly run down the hill to the beach without waiting for his friend. But because waves are loud and sand is hot Duck will not be too happy. On the other hand, Goose will be delighted with the water, diving inside though he will quickly realize how strong waves are.

But it will be just the beginning of adventurous day in which the two friends will meet various animal companions, some more friendly than others and experience a lot of exciting things, eventually heading back to their beloved meadow...

‘Duck & Goose Go to the Beach’ presents a nice story about friendship in which the author skillfully threw motives of routine and fear of the unknown in a way to be easily understood by young children.

The situation in which two friends are leaving known to set off on a trip and experience a lot of exciting adventures to eventually return to the place they love the most is many times seen, but Tad Hills with his simple but beautiful illustrations with large motifs across almost the entire pages presents in the wonderful way that will attract the attention of young readers from two years upwards.

Therefore a well-made story, beautiful artwork and a great lesson are recommendations for this interesting picture book made for the youngest.

My grandson lives near a Texas beach. I knew this book needed to be in his library. Tad Hills has become a trusted author for our family. We know our grandson will be drawn by the artwork, characters and storyline. Those birds are such good friends!

This book describes my parents (my Dad being Goose) so I had to buy it for my son because I get a laugh out of it. He enjoys the story as well as the illustrations.

My two year old granddaughter loves this series. The board books are a little young for her but this book has become a favorite, perhaps, in part, because she too loves the beach. The pictures are wonderful as is the journey these two friends make over hill and dale until they reach the beach. One is cautious and the other adventuresome so they make a good pair.

Sweet book. I bought it for my three and a half year old grandson but that was a mistake. He is already into avengers and Star Wars and this didn't interest him. I gave it to a friend who has a two year old daughter and she chooses it every night for her bedtime book.

We have a lot of the Duck and Goose books. My 3 year old loves them and this one was no different. He loves the page where he can trace their steps to the beach.
