ABOUT THIS BOOK

Take a trip to the beach with the beloved, classic, and New York Times–bestselling odd couple Duck & Goose!

Duck wants to go on an adventure. But Goose isn't so sure. Together, the two best friends set off on a walk that takes them through the meadow, past a shady thicket, and over a distant hill, all the way to a place they've never been before—the beach! Turns out, Goose loves the ocean. But guess who doesn't?

Praise for the Duck & Goose series:
 
“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

QUOTES

Kirkus Reviews, March 1, 2014:
"Soft oils transport the impressively simple, silly little figures of Duck and Goose in their floppy sun hats across single- and double-page spreads, from the greens of the meadow to the blues, whites and tans of sky, water and sand, while their expressive eyes and postures amply convey comic emotion and visual back story. Anyone ever simultaneously excited and nervous about leaving home and traveling to new places will identify with this droll duo on their first amusing trip to the beach."
