From School Library Journal PreSÀ”Duck and Goose are searching for a pumpkin
like the one their friend Thistle has. They look unsuccessfully in a hollow
log, in a pile of bright autumn leaves, and in an apple tree. They even look
under the water and on top of a stump before Thistle suggests that they look
in the pumpkin patch. On the final spread, they are shown carrying a large
pumpkin between them, and Goose says, "We sure know how to find a pumpkin,
Duck," and Duck agrees. This appealing story is told in simple, well-chosen
words and illustrated with uncluttered oil paintings done in autumn colors.
Signs of the season are everywhere. Dark red apples have fallen to the ground,
a lone acorn sits on a tree stump, and orange leaves lay lightly on the grass
under a pellucid blue sky. Preschoolers on their annual pilgrimage to the
local pumpkin patch will identify with Goose and Duck.À”Mary Jean Smith,
