about this item
In Suzanne Bloom’s fifth Goose and Bear story, Goose must leave to run an errand. Before he flies away, he tells Fox to let Bear know that he’ll be right back. But Fox is so wrapped up in her playtime that she forgets to give Bear the message. In the end, while Fox’s forgetfulness causes more problems than she could possibly have imagined, these three friends manage—as always—to forgive and forget, and Fox learns a valuable lesson. This is another pitch-perfect, emotionally resonant picture book from Suzanne Bloom, this time about the essence of friendships and the importance of forgiveness.
