Booktalk #1

Duck and Goose had both spotted it at the same time.  A giant egg.  Of course, each one thinks he was the first one that saw it.  And each one insisted that he owns it.  Together they sit on the egg to keep it warm and argue about who is going to teach the little bird the things it will need to know.  But what will happen when they feel that first movement from the egg?

Booktalk #2

Duck and Goose find a mysterious spotted spherical object. Immediately, each claims ownership of the egg. They argue. They bicker. They finally agree to take care of the egg together, but the mystery continues. Is it really an egg? Read this hilarious story to find out.  (Pennsylvania Young Reader’s Choice Awards nominee, 2008-2009)
