About the Author

Olivier Dunrea is the creator of beautiful and well-loved children's books. A painter and a sculptor, his work centers around farms, animals, architecture, and folklore. He lives in the tiny village of Narrowsburg, New York, in the Catskill Mountains.


Two more feathered favorites hit the board book scene in Gossie and Gossie & Gertie by Olivier Dunrea. In our Best Books citation, PW wrote, "Preschoolers cannot help but recognize themselves in the guise of two irresistible goslings, who star in a pair of handsize volumes about friendship, sharing and budding independence." (Houghton, $6.95 each 32p ages 3-5 ISBN 978-0-618-74791-7; 978-0-618-74793-1; Feb.) Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.

Adding ample wry humor to both his spare ink-and-watercolor pictures and minimalist text, Dunrea imbues both goslings with distinctive, endearing personalities and chronicles experiences every preschooler can recognize. Publishers Weekly, Starred

School Library Journal, Starred The potent combination of toddler-appealing story lines and the charismatic charm of the illustrations assure that these smartly clad geese will be marching straight into the hearts of readers. Kirkus Reviews Gossie and Gertie's boots are made for walking; the books they so delightfully traverse are made for treasuring.
Horn Book, Starred "Preschoolers are bound to ask for an encore reading, and they'll probably ask for new boots, too." The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
