Mindi and the Goose No One Else Could See

We rated this book:


From the international best-selling author of Guess How Much I Love You comes the beautiful story of a little girl named Mindi who sees a big, scary goose that no one else can see. Her well-meaning parents cannot figure out how to make a goose they can’t see go away, so they seek the advice of a wise, old man, who comes up with an amusing solution.

Sam McBratney’s gentle story exploring a little girl’s anxiety will likely become a much-loved tale quickly. Mindi’s very real fear is not dismissed as silly by the adults around her. Rather, her feelings are respected and addressed with care. Bratney’s spot-on surprise ending will no doubt delight readers. Furthermore, Linda Ólafsdóttir’s charming illustrations perfectly pair with this text. Indeed, her depictions of an invisible goose are especially clever and will entertain readers. Although the world lost a wonderful storyteller when McBratney passed away in 2020, his memory will live on in part in this remarkable story. For those seeking a heart-warming bedtime story, Mindi and the Goose No One Else Could See should not be missed.
