For Duck & Goose


Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, December 12, 2005:
“Hills’ feathered heroes enact a dialogue familiar to anyone who has negotiated with siblings or playground rivals.”

Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, December 15, 2005:
“Every artistic decision underscores the humor with deft mastery … Readers will hope to see more of this adorable couple.”

Review, Parents Magazine, March 2009:
“The title characters have a big fight over a giant egg. When it turns out to be a ball, they learn to play with it together.”
