"The art jumps off the pages, a fitting verb for a clever, clever book, alive in every way."
-- BOOKLIST(starred review)

Silly Suzy Goose is just like all the other geese. But how she wishes she could hang upside-down like a bat or stretch like a giraffe. And how wonderful to jump, jump, JUMP like a kangaroo Suzy wanders far from her flock, meeting animals very different from her. But when she crosses paths with a cranky lion, she learns the advantage of blending in with the crowd Spirited little readers will go for this tale of a silly goose in search of a brand new style -- at least some of the time.
