Peedie. Olivier Dunrea. 2004/2008. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. 16 pages.

This is Peedie.
Peedie is a gosling.
A small, yellow gosling who sometimes forgets things.

Peedie may forget plenty of things--to eat all his food, to take a nap, to come in out of the rain. But he NEVER forgets to wear his lucky red baseball cap. Or almost never. Readers learn what happens when Peedie puts his special hat in a secret place. (I think secret places are like safe places. And you probably know how tricky those can be!) Can Peedie remember his secret place? Or is his lucky red cap gone for good?

I liked this one! I think this series is very fun, very playful.

  1. My youngest has just seen the image over my shoulder and squealed with delight - we have it in Dutch (the gosling is called Gonnie) and it's much loved. Interestingly I thought the gosling was known as Gossie in English - perhaps I'm confused and this is another character?

  2. I love this series! I bought all of the books by Dunrea years ago. Glad to see you're highlighting this series.
