9780763638030: Look Out, Suzy Goose

Children are sure to smile as Suzy sets off to the woods in search of peace and quiet — cluelessly evading a trail of hungry critters in her wake.

One afternoon all the geese are honking — except Suzy Goose, who is heading off to escape the noise. Suzy loves being alone in the woods, but the fox (TIPTOE), the wolf (CREEP, CREEP), and the bear (PAD, PAD) on her trail have other things in mind! Bold, energetic illustrations follow Suzy on a suspenseful adventure, saved by a funny near-miss that sends her back to her flock.

About the Author:

Petr Horacek is the creator of SILLY SUZY GOOSE and several other children’s picture books and novelty titles. He lives in England.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1—In this sequel to Silly Suzy Goose (Candlewick, 2006), Suzy Goose again finds herself feeling dissatisfied with her life. The incessant honking of her fellow geese sends her flip-flopping to the woods to find a quiet respite. "But Suzy Goose was not alone." Soon she is unwittingly pursued by a fox, a wolf, and a bear—tiptoeing, creeping, and padding behind her, until the hoot of a noisy owl startles away the predators, ruining their dinner plans. Visually stimulating mixed-media illustrations, including textured paints and paper collage, evoke those fundamental emotions often found in stories involving the fabled "woods"—intense red signals danger while predominant blacks and grays represent fear and unawareness. Suzy Goose's stalkers act unnaturally as animals (e.g., the bear hunts other large predators), but they function perfectly as symbols for a spectrum of childhood apprehensions. Despite its mildly scary content, this book is amusing, relatively short, and overall suitable for younger children. Nonetheless, it should probably be read well before bedtime.—Madeline Walton-Hadlock, San Jose Public Library, CA
