Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Reviewed with Olivier Dunrea's Boo Boo.

PreS. Similar in format and approach to Dunrea's picture books about Gossie, Gertie, and Ollie, these volumes introduce two new goslings. Boo Boo presents a little blue gosling who likes to eat; she walks around the barnyard happily devouring morsels left out for the hens, the goat, and the mouse. When she swallows a soap bubble, she begins burping repeatedly. Afterward, Boo Boo seems a little more discriminating about what she calls "Good food." Peedie features a yellow gosling who is a bit forgetful. Though he always wears his baseball cap, one day he forgets where he put it and searches for it without success. His mother reminds him to do a chore he had forgotten, and Peedie is elated to find his cap. Although the simple stories will please children, it's the cleanly designed and sometimes humorous ink-and-watercolor artwork that gives these small books their irresistible charm. The simple texts make these good choices for new readers. Carolyn Phelan

Review

It is the cleanly designed and sometimes humorous artwork that gives these small books their irresistaible charm.
—Booklist, ALA

Dunrea's simply charming ink-and-watercolor art reveals an endearing cast of diminutive critters.
—Publishers Weekly

Forgetful Peedie enjoy[s] circular adventures replete with the repetitive phrases in which toddlers revel.
—Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

The ink-and-watercolor illustrations are as simple as the text, and small children will recognize and relate to each story's tiny arc and resolution.
—Kirkus Reviews

Dunrea's feathered characters have the look and feel of preschoolers rapt in their own discovery of the world.
—School Library Journal

My daughter reads these books every night and loves them.
Mitch Green
The pages are nice and simple and the story is also nice and short which should fare well for the upcoming toddler attention span!
Skinny
I absolutely LOVE the illustrations, they are simple and so cute and so are the stories.

Right from the first two books about Gossie, my grandson and I were taken by Olivier Dunrea's books. They are colorful and uncluttered with simple honest lessons for little ones about sharing with friends and how no one is perfect. Peedie with his little red hat is no exception. I was able to read it to my grandson through our web cams and the pictures showed up beautifully.

Peedie is an adventurous gosling who misplaces his lucky red baseball cap and goes searching for it. The illustrations are just absolutely adorable. My 20-month old son adores this book. Very charming! Makes me want to take a look at related books by the author.

It is short and direct and endearing all at the same time. This is one of my 20 month old son's favorite books to have read to him. I am glad it is short - since he loves to have it read to him many times a day. I don't know about you, but that great classic Green Eggs and Ham gets pretty tiring the 3rd or 4th time through.

My son loves this one, along with another book by the same artist, "Ollie". For some reason, my son almost breaks into laugher when Mama goose scolds Peedie for forgetting to turn the egg. Always puts a smile on his face, and he likes me to read it to him often.

My daughter, age 20 months, really enjoyed this series from the library, so I just bought a bunch of this book and some others in the series to give as birthday gifts at 2nd birthday parties. They are about a little goose who loses something but finds something unexpected, a friend. P.s. My kid wanted to tear and crinkle the pages of the hard cover book from the library so I bought the board books for her and her friends which are much more durable.

This is the cutest book. The story is short and very simple. Each page has only one or two short sentences which will keep a small child from becoming too restless. If I read this book to my daughter I can usually count on reading it two or three times because whenever the story is over she says "more, more". It is such a cute story I don't mind reading it a few times. I am planning on buying a couple other books by the same author.

My 6 month old daughter loves Peedie. She gets so excited when she sees the simple white cover with yellow Peedie and his special red hat. The pages are nice and simple and the story is also nice and short which should fare well for the upcoming toddler attention span! I am looking forward to picking up the rest of the Gossie and Friends books for her enjoyment.

Peedie is a small, yellow gosling who sometimes forgets things. Olivier Dunrea's illustrations are simple yet colorful - absolutely delightful and appealing to all, yes even adults. Peedie wears a red baseball cap wherever he goes until one day he puts it in a secret place. Of course he forgets where he put it and so a search commences? Where does he find it? On top of an egg :)

One of our preschoolers favorite in our home library.
