Celebrate ten fun-filled years of honking and quacking with this extra-special anniversary edition of the original New York Times bestselling Duck & Goose picture book. It's an unforgettable children's classic starring two beloved characters, and a must-have for any child's home library.

Meet Duck and Goose, two young birds who mistake a polka-dot ball for an egg and have to master the art of cooperation—and sharing—to take care of it. But friendship is not always easy, as proved in this funny, accessible story. Young readers will instantly recognize themselves in these adorable and eternally optimistic characters. And this beautiful keepsake edition features extra content from the author on how to draw Duck & Goose. 

“Duck and Goose have taken their places alongside Frog and Toad and George and Martha as fine examples of friendship, curiosity and problem-solving.” —Kirkus Reviews
