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

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.

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 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.

Both of my grandsons have been captivated by these little books, both in book form and on my kindle. The illustrations are clear, colorful, and uncomplicated, and the boys learn to recognize the little goslings and think of them as friends.

Bought for my Niece. She likes books because she likes to read. She hasn't said if she likes this book or not but I'm assuming she does, otherwise she would have said something, because she complains a lot.
