The Adventures of Jeremy Goose
Among the moss-draped oaks of New Orleans’s Audubon Park lives young Jeremy Goose. After he hatches from an egg, he learns to walk, eat grass, swim, cross the road, and get along with other animals, all under the watchful eyes of his Mom and Dad. On the banks of the park’s lagoon, Jeremy and his family live with their neighbors, including a squirrel, a snake, and a bad-mannered nutria. Jeremy is a thoughtful and sensitive little goose who sometimes gets into trouble but always feels the love of his family. Through Jeremy’s voice, young readers learn about family, responsibility, having fun, and growing up.
“Sylvaine Sancton’s new book is a wonderfully tender story about real life and nature in New Orleans’s Audubon Park. Masterfully photographed, Jeremy Goose works and reads well! A great addition to any child’s library.”—David Spielman, photographer
“Sylvaine Sancton shares her passion for the birds of Audubon Park in this coming of age adventure story about a kind little goose named Jeremy.”—Johnette Downing, author and musician
