Reviewed with Olivier Dunrea's Boo Boo0 . PreS. Similar in format and approach to Dunrea's picture books about Gossie, Gertie, and Ollie, these volumes introduce two new goslings. Boo Boo0 presents a little blue gosling who likes to eat; she walks around the barnyard happily devouring morsels left out for the hens, the goat, and the mouse. When she swallows a soap bubble, she begins burping repeatedly. Afterward, Boo Boo seems a little0 more discriminating about what she calls "Good food." Peedie0 features a yellow gosling who is a bit forgetful. Though he always wears his baseball cap, one day he forgets where he put it and searches for it without success. His mother reminds him to do a chore he had forgotten, and Peedie is elated to find his cap. Although the simple stories will please children, it's the cleanly designed and sometimes humorous ink-and-watercolor artwork that gives these small books their irresistible charm. The simple texts make these good choices for new readers. --Carolyn Phelan Copyright 2004 Booklist

PreS-Gr 1-A new twosome joins Dunrea's gaggle of geese stories. BooBoo will eat anything and everything-from the contents of her own plate to the chicken's grain to weeds, all to the refrain of "Good food." When she ingests a bubble that floats above the pond, she can't stop burping until she sips a bit of water and proclaims, "Good food." The last picture shows her reaching her beak toward a beehive. Peedie is easily distracted and, therefore, a forgetful gosling. His lucky red baseball cap is the only thing he consistently remembers until he decides to put it in a secret place and temporarily loses it. His search results in a happy ending. Though perhaps not as strongly plotted as Gossie and Gossie and Gertie (both Houghton, 2002), these offerings still share a winsome sensibility that invites audiences to delight in the fowls' antics. The simple artwork features plenty of white space, bright colors, and a clean line that attracts the eye. Dunrea's feathered characters have the look and feel of preschoolers rapt in their own discovery of the world. The texts have short sentences, repetition, and a rhythm that make them just right for even the youngest toddlers.-Marge Loch-Wouters, Menasha's Public Library, WI (c) Copyright 2010.

To his fetching flock of goslings (Gossie & Gertie; Ollie) Dunrea adds two welcome and worthy feathered friends. Each of these tiny creatures, like their predecessors, has a distinct personality and a penchant for doing something that will spark recognition in adults and youngsters alike. "Peedie forgets things. Even when Mama Goose reminds him." And BooBoo is a curious blue gosling who "likes to eat from morning till night. Every day." There is one thing that Peedie never forgets, however: to wear his lucky red baseball cap. Well, almost never. When one day he puts the hat in a "secret place" but forgets where, his search for it turns up some endearing images: only the gosling's webbed feet stick up as he looks in the pond; and again, only his bottom half is visible as he searches under a flower pot. BooBoo's insatiable appetite compels her to visit other farm animals and sample their rations, each time announcing, with kid-pleasing repetition, "Good food." But she discovers that she likes to eat almost but not quite "everything" after swallowing a soap bubble, which results in a comical succession of burps, and a burst of bubbles. Dunrea's simply charming ink-and-watercolor art reveals an endearing supporting cast of diminutive critters (turtle, spider, snail) observing the goslings' antics. In what may be a good omen for fans of this growing gang, Peedie finds his lost cap atop a gosling egg. Ages 2-5. (Aug.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
