William and Boomer

Lindsay Barrett George, Author Greenwillow Books $16 (25p) ISBN 978-0-688-06640-6
William is a little boy who lives with his parents by a lake. One spring day he finds a baby goose, Boomer, who becomes his constant companion. While William waits for the water to warm up so he can learn to swim, Boomer slowly grows into an adult goose. At last the time comes when William and Boomer can go swimming together. The richly detailed, highly realistic illustrations draw the reader into William and Boomer's world, and the overall effect is calm and soothing. Children will take pleasure in William and Boomer's out of the ordinary friendship and the quiet satisfaction William derives from learning to swim. A very promising first picture book. Ages 3-6.
