This story, which gives a nod to Beatrix Potter’s The Tale of Jemima Puddleduck, of the encounter between a fox and a wily goose unfolds like a silent film, the dialogue appearing on framed intertitles in a white font on a matt black background. Interspersed with the main action, goslings express their increasing alarm that what is happening is NOT a good idea! The repetitive and patterned text supports less experienced readers who may bring a sophisticated understanding of narrative gained through oral storytelling and film to their reading of this enjoyable picture book.
