Cabban's animal folk are neatly portrayed and anthropomorphized, and Gooseberry's joy in flying is nicely done. English author and illustrator capture a certain openhearted Brit approach to animal stories that is very attractive, and the double-spread, full-bleed pictures are full of sky and leaf. The clear light of autumn breezes through these pages, as Gooseberry Goose practices landing, taking off, gliding, and doing loop-the-loops. His buddies barely have time to watch his flying practice, however, as Mouse is making his nest warm for the winter, Squirrel is gathering acorns, and Beaver has to finish his dam.

The gooseberry, with scientific names Ribes uva-crispa (and syn. Ribes grossularia), is a species of Ribes (which also includes the currants). It is native to Europe, the Caucasus and northern Africa. The species is also sparingly naturalized in scattered locations in North America. Gooseberry bushes produce an edible fruit and are grown on both a commercial and domestic basis. Its native distribution is unclear, since it may have escaped from cultivation and become naturalized

As Gooseberry Goose practices his flying, he sees his friends scrambling to get ready for winter, and he fears that he needs to get ready, too, but when he returns home, his parents reassure him that by practicing his flying, he has been getting ready for winter. Reprint.

Little Devil
This is a cute book about a goose learning to fly and wondering why everyone else is so busy preparing for winter and he is just flying, not realizing that he is preparing for winter. We like it a lot! (5 year old, 2.5 year old and parents.)

This book has big delicious pictures of full autumn weather and big friendly animals, notably "Gooseberry Goose." Gooseberry is wonderfully drawn, in flight his webbed feet look humorously oversized, and his long thin neck doesn't seem proportional to his giant two-layer wings and his hefty, round body. Gooseberry lives in a river community where all the friendly, but very busy animals prepare for winter in their own way. The brown beaver must finish his dam, the deep auburn squirrel collects acorns, and the rabbit has to cozy up his den (the entrance to which looks very much like the outline of a bunny!). The bright colors and very approachable animals make for a joyous story.

But Gooseberry hears his own call of the wild, and that call commands him to practice flying. He has a bumpy takeoff near the beaver dam and soars happily among the orange and yellow leaves. There's just enough tension as we see all the animals gathering food for winter-except for Gooseberry. Even Gooseberry is concerned:

"Winter's coming! And I'm not ready!' said Gooseberry. Mama laughed. "Little gooseberry, don't you remember what I told you? Geese don't stay here for the winter. It gets too cold." We'll be fling south, where it will be nice and warm," Papa said. "It's a long, long trip, and that's why you need to practice flying. You've been getting ready for winter all day!"

In a final picture, we see Gooseberry and his parents flying high above the pond, where Gooseberry's non-migrating friends wave goodbye. It's a lovely picture of purple hazed mountains, golden-topped trees, autumnal leaves, and evergreen trees. This is a gentle story with friendly, inviting animal characters, a nature-driven plot, and excellent color quality.
