PreS–Suzy the goose and her farm animal friends have decorated a Christmas tree in the barnyard. All it needs is a star on top, and Suzy sees a perfect one up in the sky. She can not reach it no matter how high she jumps, and when she tries to walk to it, she gets lost in the snow. Luckily, with the help of her friends, she finds her way home. Meanwhile the star has magically moved to the top of the tree. Despite the lack of plot, young children will giggle at Suzy's silliness and rejoice when she is reunited with her pals. The full-spread mixed-media illustrations depicting a textured snowy landscape against a starry night sky contrast with the friendly and determined figure of Suzy, with her orange beak glowing and her tiny eyes on the prize. Quiet and sweet–a fine choice for both storytime and family sharing.–Eva Mitnick, Los Angeles Public Library END

Simple mixed-media paintings follow her trek. Who would have guessed that a white goose trudging through white show could have so much personality? The minimalist text perfectly suits the expressive art: not one word too many, not one snowflake too few. Here is a book to pore over and enjoy again and again, year after year, Christmas after Christmas.
All the Suzy Goose books have wonderful illustrations and good stories, and this is no exception. Suzy decides that she needs to get a star for the Christmas tree and of course has an unexpected adventure, but then everything turns out in the end. (Does that count as a spoiler?)
