The feathered friends are getting ready for Christmas. The only problem? Goose is more interested in skating, sledding, and making snow angels than in helping Duck decorate their Christmas tree. Full color.
Who doesn’t love Duck and Goose? There are so many fun things to do in the snow and Goose wants to play, but Duck knows that when it is time for Christmas, everything else is secondary. It is fun how expressive their postures are. I am glad that Goose gets to do something fun in the end.
