Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1—In this sequel to Silly Suzy Goose (Candlewick, 2006), Suzy Goose again finds herself feeling dissatisfied with her life. The incessant honking of her fellow geese sends her flip-flopping to the woods to find a quiet respite. "But Suzy Goose was not alone." Soon she is unwittingly pursued by a fox, a wolf, and a bear—tiptoeing, creeping, and padding behind her, until the hoot of a noisy owl startles away the predators, ruining their dinner plans. Visually stimulating mixed-media illustrations, including textured paints and paper collage, evoke those fundamental emotions often found in stories involving the fabled "woods"—intense red signals danger while predominant blacks and grays represent fear and unawareness. Suzy Goose's stalkers act unnaturally as animals (e.g., the bear hunts other large predators), but they function perfectly as symbols for a spectrum of childhood apprehensions. Despite its mildly scary content, this book is amusing, relatively short, and overall suitable for younger children. Nonetheless, it should probably be read well before bedtime.—Madeline Walton-Hadlock, San Jose Public Library, CA

From Booklist

The hapless heroine of Horácek’s Silly Suzy Goose (2006) returns in another dramatic story. Frazzled by the honking of her flock, Suzy saunters off into the woods in search of quiet. Not since Beatrix Potter’s Jemima Puddleduck and Pat Hutchin’s Rosie has such an amiable, oblivious bird taken such a dangerous stroll. Soon followed by a fox, who is soon followed by a wolf, who is soon followed by a bear, the oblivious goose hears only the quiet of the woods. She lets out a happy honk, which sets a rescue in motion. The story reads aloud well, but even better are the mixed-media illustrations, which make very effective use of crayon, paint, and collage elements to create distinctive characters, moods, and settings. In the ominous forest scenes, Horácek contrasts the simple, white form of the goose with the complex shadings of trees and beasts in the forest to create a sense of danger and intensity. A satisfying picture book for young children. Preschool-Grade 1. --Carolyn Phelan

I teach young children and they enjoy this book. Silly Suzy Goose walks through the woods, not noticing the scary animals behind her. Children like to make the tiptoeing, creeping, and other sounds to join in the story. It's a lot of fun, but if you have fearful or very sensitive children in your group, this story may not be appropriate for them.

My mom gave this to us earlier this year, and it has been a mainstay of story time ever since. My 2 year old son knows the entire story by heart, and will "read" us every page. The illustrations are wonderful, and so artistic that it is a real joy reading the book, even for the 1000+ time. We now have to flip-flop flip-flop every time we go out for a walk, and look for any old owls that might be lurking in the woods. It's a great book!!!

Petr Horacek continues to impress me. My 2 year old is just starting to have some exposure to "scary" stories in which animals are threatening to kill other animals. This book deals with this common topic of children folktales in a way that is very appropriate for my son's age and lack of experience with "scary" stories. There is some very wonderful use of color to help foreshadow the danger that Suzy Goose is about to face. Even though the threat to Suzy Goose is not downplayed, the cute manner in which she is drawn allowed my son to mostly laugh throughout the whole story.
