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

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!

"Tilly was a silly goose," starts this adorable book by Eileen Spinelli that takes us through all the many things this wacky fowl does. She likes to kiss fish, take baths in apple juice, and sit on birthday cakes annoying the rest of the barnyard with her wild antics. They tell her that she must stop all her nonsense and behave like the rest of the group. Sadly, she complies with their demands. The group soon realize thet her behavior livened up the place, "Hetta Hen remarked, I haven't laughed since-when? - since Tilly chased the garbageman!"

Realizing they were wrong to make Tilly conform, all the animals apologize. Tilly resumes her harmless pranks, and once again entertains the entire barnyard with her shenanigans.

A wonderful tale pf appreciating our friends for who they really are and having the understanding that we shouldn't change them.

Beautiful and richly illustrated by David Slomin. Sweet book for some nice discussions on the meaning of friendship.

This is a silly rhyming book.

"Tilly is not an ordinary goose. She takes her bath in apple juice. She wears a pancake as a hat. She tries to ride the farmer's cat. She kissed a fish. Imagine that."

When her barnyard friends tell her she's too silly she turns into a sad goose. Her friends miss the old Tilly and talk about how they haven't laughed since she stopped being so silly. The horse apologizes to Tilly and Tilly turns back into her silly self.

My two and a half year old daughter loves this book. We get books from the Dolly Parton library, and while we enjoy reading some of those books together, they're always so serious or poetic. My daughter is a little goofball and this book makes her laugh. The goose wears a pancake on her head and steps in mayo. That kind of thing makes my daughter want to read books with me. Also, the rhymes are much more skillful in this book that in many children's books.

I'm a teacher and I ordered this book through a school book order catalog using some of my bonus points. I ordered it when my son was a few months old because it didn't cost a lot of points and it looked cute, but then I put it away for when he was older and didn't think much more about it. Now my son is 18 months and to my surprise this was one of the first books he selected on his own. He LOVES Silly Tilly! He will run to his room, grab Silly Tilly from his book basket and shout "Goo!" all the way back to me. ("Goo" is his word for Goose.) I think I've read this book every night for the past several weeks, and I will keep on reading it since this is one of the few books he listens to all the way through while he sits on my lap. While reading, we have fun pointing out the different animals on the pages and making their noises.

Silly Tilly is a simple story told in rhyme about a goose and her barnyard shenanigans. The illustrations are not overly bright, which is one of the reasons I wasn't drawn to this book right away. I prefer bright and bold illustrations. But my son likes the fun, cartoonish animals, so I can't complain. At first I thought he liked the book because of the all the farm animals...he loves farm animals...but I've tried reading him other farm themed books to no avail. So, I can only conclude that there is something special about Silly Tilly. :-)
