From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3-- In this freely adapted version of the Grimms' "The Wolf and the Seven Kids," the kids have been replaced by seven irrepressible goslings and the wolf by a fox. This retelling softens the traditional climax of the tale. Whereas the Grimms' wolf ate the kids, the fox merely pops the goslings in a sack, and Mother Goose sets them free with a snip of her shears. Conover has captured a 17th century Dutch village with humor and affection. Details spill over the neatly-ruled borders of her richly hued watercolor illustrations as if the life of the story cannot be contained. The artist has chosen three formats for her work. In addition to the conventional layouts of illustrations and text, she uses a series of oblong lace-bordered samplers across the bottom of her pages to depict characters traveling from scene to scene, and most interestingly of all, she has created captioned double-page spreads that, like intermissions in a play, invite children to linger over the playful details of the art. Children will want to climb right into the well-ordered little town inhabited by hard-working Mother Goose and her family. The tale is involving, although not as dramatic as earlier tellings. The pictures are the crowning glory of this book, and because of this, children may enjoy it most as a lap story or as a "read-to-yourself" book. It is delightful experience, and one that should not be rushed. --Carey Ayres, Port Washington Public Library, NY

From Publishers Weekly:

Mother Goose, who watches over her seven goslings and one do-nothing mouse, goes to market one day. The goslings innocently open the door to a hungry fox, who needs food for his own young cubs. Six of the goslings are bagged and carted off, but Mother Goose saves her children when the lazy fox takes a nap. Doused in an ivory glow reminiscent of old-fashioned postcards, the pictures in Conover's latest work are a creamy confection of charm and cinema. In lace and ribbon-framed borders, elements of the story are referred to and exalted, while dramatic spreads elaborate on the action with picturesque scenes of village life. The book is ornate without being inaccessible, and while the story has less impact than the art, it fares well as an original tale. Ages 3-up.
