Gossie and Gertie
This is Gossie.
This is Gertie.
Gossie wears bright red boots.
Gertie wears bright blue boots.
They are friends. Best friends.
I enjoyed Gossie & Gertie even more than Gossie. In this adventure, the goslings friendship is explored and defined. Readers may notice--or at least adult readers will notice--just how bossy Gossie is! How spirited. But Gertie is not one that is easily led. No, sometimes Gertie likes to have a say! And that's okay with Gossie. Especially if where he is leading her is to dinner!
The text is very fun, very playful. Proof that simple can be a very good thing! And the illustrations match that spirit well.
