“Goose on the loose”
This is one of my son's favourite bedtime stories and it makes him laugh when Goose gets what she deserves after upsetting everyone. Although he doesn't read yet (aged 3) he loves books and is beginning to want to know what the words say thanks to these simple, funny books. A funny and lively book which he enjoys again and again.
