Description

“[A] pitch-perfect tale of friends as different as different can be.” —Kirkus Reviews

Jasper likes to be neat. Each morning he tidies his nest and puts on his cap and bow tie. Joop likes to be messy! Each morning he rumples his nest and musses his feathers. Despite their differences, Jasper and Joop are best friends—and birds of a feather! But what will happen when one friend gets into trouble with some busy bees? 
        Another pair of darling goslings make a splash in this Level 1 early reader, with Olivier Dunrea’s simple storytelling style and expressive illustrations that Gossie & Friends fans have come to cherish. Includes bonus downloadable read-along audio.

Praise For Jasper & Joop (Reader) (Gossie & Friends)

"[A] pitch-perfect tale of friends as different as different can be."
Kirkus

"Dunrea's expressive vignettes capture the innocence and adventure of toddlerhood and imbue the tilt of a beak or the curve of a feather with humor and personality."
School Library Journal
