Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

"Pilkey creates an altogether festive mood, cheering those who waddle to a different drummer," said PWof this introduction to the Silly Goose family. Ages 4-8. (May)
Copyright 2000 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From School Library Journal

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.

This is the best book I have ever read, and I am 12! Sensational, emotional, cool, funny, happy, sad, and everything else! Sue Denim and Dav Pilky have done the best work since "The Dumb Bunnies" series! The next "Silly Geese" title is sure to be a hit!

Format: Paperback
I've got 3 kids: one in high school, middle school and elementary school. I've read a lot of children's books over the years and this is one of my absolute favorites. It is very silly and funny, but there is also a great message in there that it is okay to be different. That even if the bigger world doesn't get you, there is a mate/friend out there for everyone. You don't have to conform to be happy, pursue you own bliss, etc. If your family is quirky (like ours), this is book for you.
