The Geese March In Step

The Geese March in Step Book CoverEvery morning, Igor has the flock of geese goose-stepping down to the pond.  Poor little Zita is out of step and Igor kicks her out of the parade.  Zita sets her own rhythmic pace and soon has all the other animals in the French farmyard following her be-bop beat.  Comic, cartoon-like animals with expressive faces are painted in chalky colors.  The endpapers show goose dance step floor patterns. mjw
