PreS-Gr 1--When Duck presents Goose with a colorful and neatly wrapped gift, Goose gets excited to have the striped box to store his special stuff inside. He gathers his crayons, shell, hats, and his ball of yarn while Duck tries to find the words to tell him his gift is actually inside the striped box. When Goose unwraps his gift, he finds a polka dotted box. Duck tells Goose it is for him to keep his special stuff inside. Of course, Goose is delighted and grateful. Typical of the series illustrations, Hills shows action and emotion in this funny story through bright, charming images of young Duck and Goose. VERDICT Fans of the series will enjoy this comical mix-up of friendship, generosity, and appreciation.--Lindsay Persohn, University of South Florida, Tampa and Polk County Public Schools.
