Reviewed with Olivier Dunrea's Ollie the Stomper.
PreS. The creator of the Gossie books introduces a new sibling for Gossie and Gertie--Ollie the gosling, stubborn, impatient, and endearing. His independent streak becomes obvious in Ollie as his sisters try to coax him out of his egg. It's only after they lose interest that the ornery little goose breaks through the shell. Ollie the Stomper picks up soon after. Though just recently hatched, Ollie is already feeling left out. His sisters have colorful boots, and Ollie wants some, too. Each sister gives him one of her boots, but after stomping around the barnyard, the fickle Ollie decides that the weather is too hot for footwear but perfect for a swim. Both books feature bright, uncluttered ink-and-watercolor illustrations and simple, repetitive text. Their small trim size and manageable text make them just right for beginning readers. Preschoolers will relate to Ollie's point of view and delight in his humorous reactions to the new world he's discovering. Jennifer Locke
