Ollie's Easter Eggs
By

Rating

Product Description:

The latest Gossie and Friends book opens with goslings Gossie, Gertie, BooBoo, and Peedie working hard at gathering and dyeing eggs, while Ollie spends his time playing. When he sees their coloured eggs, Ollie is overwhelmed with desire. He swipes their eggs and hides them. The four hardworking goslings begin an earnest Easter egg hunt that ends with Ollie displaying “his” decorated eggs. The story concludes there, leaving children to wonder what happens after Ollie’s revelation. But meanwhile, there’s plenty to enjoy in the book’s pleasing design, its nicely cadenced text, and its simple but beguiling ink-and-watercolour illustrations. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Carolyn Phelan
