What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Gossie and Gertie’s boots are made for walking; the books they so delightfully traverse are made for treasuring.
Horn Book, Starred

"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

"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

Two books that are sure to become favorites…Young children will ask to hear these stories again and again, and they're just right for little hands.
School Library Journal

“Preschoolers are bound to ask for an encore reading, and they’ll probably ask for new boots, too.” The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
