Review:

Praise for Gossie&Friends books:

Ollie's Halloween
 "This low-key story is a great addition to the Gossie and friends books and will work well in storytime."—School Library Journal, starred review
Gossie
and Gossie&Gertie "Gossie and Gertie's boots are made for walking; the books they so delightfully traverse are made for treasuring." —The Horn Book, starred review "Two books that are sure to become favorites because they tap into quintessential preschool experience....Young children will ask for these stories again and again." —School Library Journal, starred review "Adding ample wry humor to both his spare ink-and-watercolor pictures and minimalist text, Dunrea imbues both goslings with distinctive, endearing personalities and chronicles experiences every preschooler can recognize." —Publishers Weekly, starred review "The potent combination of toddler-appealing story lines and the charismatic charm of the illustrations assure that these smartly clad geese will be marching straight into the hearts of readers." —Kirkus Reviews Ollie "With their simple watercolors and narrative, along with diminutive heroes who assert a budding independence, these tales demonstrate once again how well their creator knows his audience." —Publishers Weekly, starred review "Preschoolers will relate to Ollie's point of view and delight in his humorous reactions to the new world he's discovering." —Booklist "Art and text are spare but expressive, and Dunrea's understanding of toddler life...is remarkably keen." —The Horn Book Peedie "Dunrea's feathered characters have the look and feel of preschoolers rapt in their own discovery of the world." —School Library Journal "Peedie is a very appealing little gosling and the story and repetitive text will delight young listeners." —Children's Literature Merry Christmas, Ollie!

"...the focus on Ollie's childlike anticipation is right on target. Dunrea's graceful ink drawings and beautiful washes offer an appealing alternative to more complex, but less satisfying Christmas picture books" —Booklist

"Remaining true to his uncomplicated watercolor style, Dunrea maintains an element of charm to Ollie's waiting, depicting his impatience as sweet and subdued, rather than manic and obsessed. Parents and children will immediately relate to this youngster's excitement." —School Library Journal

Gossie & Friends: A First Flap Book

"A wonderful addition to Gossie collections." —Kirkus Reviews

2006 Nick Jr. Family Magazine Best Books of the Year
