Rated 5 out of 5 by from Five Honks Gossie (a gosling) and her red boots are captivating. The story has really good pacing, perfect for letting toddlers study the great accompanying pictures and discover story elements. I like how Gertie (Gossie's favourite pal) is introduced too. This is a simple, sweet, engaging read about friendship and sharing.
