This delightful sequel to Caldecott Medalist Roger Duvoisin's Petunia takes the foolish goose on a wild goose chase. Petunia only wants what she doesn't have. Convinced that she'll find tastier grass for her snacks beyond her home on Mr. Pumpkin's farm, she ventures far afield. After close encounters with some wild animals who are looking for a tasty snack of their own, she rushes home—to the best green grass she's ever tasted! Originally published in 1958 and long unavailable, this timeless tale works equally well as a read-aloud to young children or as a story slightly older children can enjoy reading all by themselves.
