Description
Celebrate Christmas with Duck and Goose's holiday board book
Our feathered friends are getting ready for Christmas. The only problem? Goose is more interested in skating, sledding, and making snow angels than in helping Duck decorate their Christmas tree. While Goose has the time of his life in the snow, it seems poor Duck will be left to do all the work. . . .
Tad Hills's simple text and vivid, expressive illustrations make this sweet, funny little book the perfect stocking stuffer. Preschoolers who loved the bestselling Duck & Goose Find a Pumpkin--or those meeting Duck and Goose for the first time--will be thrilled to own this charming winter tale.
"Duck and Goose have taken their places alongside Frog and Toad and George and Martha as fine examples of friendship, curiosity and problem-solving." --Kirkus Reviews

"Charming, funny, simple, and surprising. . . . Hills is master of the light comic touch." --The Boston Globe
