George the mouse is a good friend of Emily the goose. And when Emily’s goslings hatch, George is the first to visit. But George brings bad news--he has seen the fox! “With wonderfully clean, appealing collage art, a graceful, deftly honed text, and a real plot that--for all its brevity and simplicity--has suspense and a satisfying denouement, [this is] another winner from the creator of Mouse Count.”--Kirkus Reviews

From School Library Journal:
ELLEN STOLL WALSH is the author-illustrator of many popular books for children, including the successful Mouse Paint and Mouse Count books. She lives in upstate New York.
PreSchool-Grade 1-- George the mouse is the first to welcome Emily's new goslings, but he comes with the warning that he has seen a fox. Lulu the goose hears about the fox (`` ` . . . big ears, bright eyes, and sleek, shiny fur . . . ' '')--and since George matches that description, flips him into the pond. Lulu is still squawking when she comes face to face with the real fox; he nearly pounces on her, but is restrained by George, who has wrapped the predator's tail to a large growing vine. Once again, Walsh takes her simple forms found in Mouse Paint (HBJ, 1989) and brings in other large, colorful animals for an effective story with little more than dialogue for text. Much of the plot is conveyed by the illustrations, where readers see just how ridiculous Lulu's assumptions are. It is sure to find wide acceptance as a story-hour favorite. --Nancy A. Gifford, Schenectady County Public Library, NY
