Never Say Boo to a Goose

Jakki Wood. Barefoot Books, $14.99 (24pp) ISBN 978-1-84148-255-2

As with Mother Goose Remembers, Clare Beaton's fabric illustrations once again infuse a tale for the nursery set with exuberant energy. A curious kitten disobeys his mother in the paper-over-board Never Say Boo to a Goose! by Jakki Wood, illus. by Clare Beaton. ""I can say `Boo!' to anyone I like,"" thinks the frisky feline, but when he finally comes up against a goose, he's unexpectedly humbled.
