The book is about two silly gooses who are funny. They are funny because they are wacky. They are also funny because the lady goose put on a fancy suit and the male goose put on a beautiful dress. The lady goose wasn’t supposed to wear a suit because she’s a girl, and only a male goose can put on a suit. Also, the male goose has to wear a suit instead of a dress. It’s also funny because the lady goose and male goose threw cake at the other geese and get into more trouble.

I liked this book because it was very funny. It was funny because the lady silly goose fell out of the hot air balloon. And when they named their kids Ketchup and Mustard that was also funny because in the world nobody’s name is Ketchup and Mustard, only the stuff we name our food. I liked the pictures too because they were colorful and pretty.

I would recommend this book to my friend because she would like it. She would like it because it’s really funny. She would laugh at the names the silly gooses call their kids—Ketchup and Mustard. I would also recommend this book to kids who don’t laugh because I want them to feel happy and this book will make them laugh.
