Book Description

"Tilly is not an ordinary goose. She takes her baths in apple juice. She wears a pancake as a hat. She tries to ride the farmer’s cat."

But the barnyard animals complain that she’s too silly. When she stops entertaining her friends with her antics, the farm becomes a quiet and unhappy place. David Slonim’s acrylic, pencil, and ballpoint pen illustrations add to the hilarity in this story about a one-of-a-kind silly goose.

Amazon.com Review

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2—Tilly, a goose, bathes in apple juice, wears a pancake as a hat, and likes to tickle frogs. But her ways raise the ire of the other farm animals, who demand that she cease all silliness: "No more naps in Scarecrow pants!," etc. Once she stops, however, they realize that the farm is not as much fun as it used to be. They apologize to Tilly and begin to view her antics with appreciation, sometimes even joining in. The acrylic, pencil, and ballpoint pen illustrations complement the rhyming text and do a nice job of conveying the animals' varying levels of frustration. Some pictures are laugh-out-loud funny, and readers will take delight in viewing Tilly's wacky behavior, such as when she tries to ride the farmer's cat or soaks her feet in mayonnaise. This story will appeal to children who follow the beat of their own drummers, and would work well as a read-aloud.—Beth Cuddy, Seward Elementary School, Auburn, NY

5.0 out of 5 stars A WONDERFUL BOOK October 5, 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Silly Tilly is one of those rare finds in a book. Instead of reading this book, I made up a tune and sing the story and the children in my classroom love the book! Silly Tilly is a MUST have in preschool class, or a K-3 classroom where this book will become an instant favorite!

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable April 5, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed Silly Tilly's antics. Like real life the farm animals learned that Tilly added joy and laughter to their life by being herself. I think it is a lesson that all kids should learn early in life. Being you is good enough - always.
