Silly Suzy Goose

author/illustrator: Petr Horacek

Silly Suzy Goose is just like all the other geese. But how she wishes she could hang upside-down like a bat or stretch up high like a giraffe! And wouldn’t it be wonderful to jump, jump, JUMP like a kangaroo? Suzy Goose wanders farther and farther from her flock, visiting with animals that are very different from her. But when Suzy meets up with a cranky lion, she learns there may just be some advantages to blending in with the crowd!

Simple, boldly colored, and energetic, Petr Horacek’s illustrations follow the story of a silly goose in search of a brand-new style -- at least some of the time.
