There are certain children’s books I hold dear as a parent, ones that are closely associated with my own daughters’ preschool years. Olivier Dunrea’s children’s books are among them, particularly his international bestselling series of books for very young children, the Gossie & Friends series, books which have been translated into more than twenty-five languages. My children delighted in these stories, which began in 2002, and I never tired of reading them as a parent. The series is very near completion. When finished, “there will be a gaggle of thirteen diverse and spirited goslings,” says Olivier, who has been making children’s books since 1982 and who is pictured here with Gabe. These small, square books are full of stories sweet, but never saccharine, unassuming, and pleasingly offbeat.
