PreSchool-Grade 3?It's bad enough when one silly goose lives on the pond, but when another joins him and they start a silly family, all the other geese fly south in horror?in June. Pilkey's slapstick visual and concrete verbal humor combine with energetic, vivid full-color cartoons for a winning short chapter story. When a female goose arrives in a hot-air balloon to join silly Mr. Goose, she proclaims, "I will not fall out...Not unless I climb over the side and let go?like this." And she does. The pair are wed by a church mouse; to celebrate they have a party and throw a cake. Their children are named Ketchup and Mustard after the condiments they prefer on their ice cream. With plenty of action and simple dialogue, the Gooses join the grand tradition of Harry Allard and Jim Marshall's "Stupids" (Houghton). With humor tailored expertly for primary-grade children, these silly gooses will be welcomed by listeners and newly independent readers alike.?Carolyn Noah, Central Mass.
