Product Description

Written in 1950, Petunia is a classic children's story that's been re-read again and again to new generations. When Petunia finds a book, she believes that she's now wise, and goes about dispensing very questionable advice to her friends. It finally takes an explosion for her to realize it's not the book that gives wisdom...it's reading what's inside that counts. 30 pages, softcover.

Publisher's Description

When Roger Duvoisin first introduced children to his proud and silly goose, Petunia, in 1950, it was love at first sight. Those children have grown up, but Petunia is every bit as fresh and funny and muddled as the day she was born.

In this, the first of the series of classic books featuring the silly goose, Petunia finds a book—and, deciding that if she owns a book she must be wise, dispenses hilariously mistaken advice to the other animals in
the farmyard.

With its gentle lesson and the kind of humor that kids love best, this new edition of a beloved classic will delight and inspire a whole new generation of readers.
