In this preschool tale from the world of Gossie & Friends, water-loving goslings Ruby and Rufus play on the pond come rain, sleet, snow, or shine!
Ruby and Rufus play at the pond every day. They swim in the rain. They swim when it's windy. Nothing can stop this inseparable pair from doing what they love -- until one day, the pond turns to ICE! Could it be that a frozen pond is twice as nice?

Ruby & Rufus features the perfectly-pitched storytelling and adorable illustrations so beloved by fans of Olivier Dunrea's Gossie&Friends series.
