Written and Illustrated by Tad Hills
Ages 3-7

Duck and Goose face a challenge to their friendship when a young duck moves into the neighborhood who wants to play and win all sorts of games.

One day as Goose is trying to keep a butterfly on his head, his act of concentration is disrupted by the arrival of Duck and his new friend Thistle.

Thistle is a small competitive duckling, and she’s eager to show off in everything from adding to balancing sticks to hopping on one foot.

Goose competes against her for a while, but he can’t seem to win, so he goes off to do his own thing, leaving the two ducks together. Duck finds Thistle a bit too much. He locates Goose, his old friend, and once more the two go off to play with their ball.

This is a cute book that children will love. The pictures are colorful, and the story is good for a wide range of ages.
