Praise For…


“Dares readers to crank up the volume... may add a few grown-up voices to the younger chorus of giggles. The goose is all that's serious here." —Kirkus Reviews

“In his savvy, funny picture-book debut, Kimmel uses his limited drawing style to great advantage; in fact, the less the goose does, the funnier it is…. Kimmel knows that when you tell a kid not to do something, it’s sure to unleash silliness of epic proportions.” —Publishers Weekly
