From School Library Journal
PreS-Gossie, Gertie, BooBoo, and Peedie each dye their Easter eggs red, blue, purple, and yellow, respectively. Gossie hides hers in the grass. Gertie hides her in a haystack. BooBoo hides hers in a pot filled with tulips. And Peedie hides his under a green turtle. A while later, the goslings are surprised when they find their eggs missing and go on a real Easter egg hunt. They find them wrapped in shiny green ribbon as Ollie proudly looks on. Small, creative details appear hidden on each page, such as a snail, a butterfly, a piece of green ribbon, a frog, and a spider. Ollie sports an adorable rabbit-ear cap. The crisp illustrations, done in pen, ink, and gouache, show the characters in action. For example, each time Ollie hides an egg, he has to use his beak, or webbed feet, while pushing very hard, which emphasizes his small size and weight, in relation to the egg. Fans of Dunrea's series will love this new installment. It's festive and pure fun.-Anne Beier, Hendrick Hudson Free Library, Montrose, NYα(c) Copyright 2011.

"The simple declarative phrases and gently humorous illustrations are just right for the age group...Stickers are included."--Publishers Weekly
"Gossie and her friends are back, dyeing Easter eggs...As in the other "Gossie and Friends" books, the illustrations are bright watercolors against a white background. Fans and newcomers alike will be delighted with this latest installment."--School Library Journal
"As with all of his books, the overall effect is just this side of too-cute-for-words, landing it in exactly the right range of adorable. Although toddlers and young preschoolers may be mystified at the madness behind Ollie’s method, as he steals his compatriots’ hidden eggs and then hides them again, there’ll be more than pleased by his triumphant ending."--Kirkus
