Jasper likes to be neat. Each morning he tidies his nest and puts on his cap and bow tie. Joop likes to be messy! Each morning he rumples his nest and musses his feathers. Despite their differences, Jasper and Joop are two very good friends--birds of a feather! But what will happen when one friend gets into trouble with some busy bees?

   Another pair of darling goslings make their debut in this story, with Olivier Dunrea’s perfectly pitched storytelling and illustrations that Gossie&Friends fans have come to cherish.

"[A] pitch-perfect tale of friends as different as different can be."

"Dunrea's expressive vignettes capture the innocence and adventure of toddlerhood and imbue the tilt of a beak or the curve of a feather with humor and personality."
