Book 2


Unusually creative word choices and adorable goose illustrations make this book a FUN read! I bought a copy of this adorable goose book for my grandson and plan to include it in his Easter basket. I know he will be delighted. He loves animals and deeply cares about others. I believe he will find the story meaningful and thought provoking. It is a story that speaks to “the child” in all of us. – Donna Allen

In reading The Day the Goose Squabble Stopped I felt transported to the beautiful Little Puddle Pond of my own backyard. Mary Ellen Lucas tells the perfect story of our times in a nurturing, creative and heartwarming way. The characters are endearing, the illustrations are soft and exuberant and the journey through the story is guided so gracefully! I had the feeling of old time story telling. Listening to a tale of love and truth, while being cared for by supportive arms.

I can’t wait to share this, and I look forward to more!
