The beloved, classic, and New York Times–bestselling odd couple Duck & Goose are back, and this time Duck has a new friend.
Duck & Goose, Goose & Duck. Feathered friends forever . . . or are they? You see, there's a challenge to their friendship: a little whippersnapper of a duck named Thistle. Thistle's good at everything (or so she thinks), from math to holding her breath to standing on her head. Duck thinks she's fantastic. But Goose does not! And so Goose is faced with a problem close to the hearts of children everywhere: what happens when your best friend makes a new friend?
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
