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

"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.

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!

Good rhyming book. Also good book for beginners learning to read to get started with, very cute book about letting people be who they are and accepting them even if they are different and sometimes silly.

When we first got this book for my 3-year-old son he didn't even really want me to finish reading it the first time. Now, at almost three-and-a-half, we've read it several times in the past few weeks and he thinks it's hilarious. He thinks it's silly but there are several times he asks 'why?' which is my queue that something is over his head. I just looked at the description and I see that it's for Age Level 6 - 8, that may explain it. This is also great news because that means he's enjoying it now and will for another several years.

As an adult, it's a fun book to read, and even more enjoyable to look at. I think they could have done such a better job of the picture on the cover. There are so many really good, fun images in the book and I don't feel the cover represents them. *SPOILER ALERT* When the animals come back to ask Tilly to be silly, the picture of them all standing in a row with the frog holding the flower is so awesome, I wish I could get a print for the wall.

We read this book so many times my kids can literally recite the whole thing from memory just by looking at the pages. The storyline is cute- I personally love this book. However, the copy I received was paperback and flimsy. It was already worn out before the mail carrier folded it in half and stuffed it in my mailbox. So it is raggedy and bent in half. Yikes. Story is still good, worth reading- just be sure you don't order a paperback copy.

Silly Tilly is so cute and still provides a real life lesson. Tilly gets under her friends skin by acting her usual silly way and they tell her she needs to "Knock it off." As you might expect, she does that and then they all miss her goofy ways and they apologize. My Grandkids love to hear the rhyming verses that tell of the antics of this goose. The illustrations are softly done yet depict the emotions of the animals including the Wide-Eyed expressions of the cow, donkey, pig, etc. Very cute book that lets the reader really put some intonation into the story.

Delightful to look at, delightful to hold, but when I read the blurb, We had to mark it "Sold" ! a children's book - naturally... how can you go wrong? WE grew up with Grimm's fairy tales and other things we though were benign, but seeing them remade into movies and different venues, they weren't so innocent, were they? lol - These, today, were written by younger folk, who have broken the old habits we had of Snow White and Rumpelstiltskin... Can't go wrong with these books.. seriously.

Tilly we learn is a silly goose who does silly things like bathing in apple juice. She combed her feathers with a rake. After all the silly things she did the other barnyard animals had finally had enough. The question you must now discover is what will happen around the farm with Tilly no longer acting silly.
