Gideon is a small gosling who likes to play so much that he will not stop to take a nap.
Meet Gideon, the newest addition to Olivier Dunrea’s gaggle of adorable goslings! Gideon likes to splash with the ducklings, hop with the frogs, play chase-the-piglets, and scamper all over the farmyard. But one thing busy Gideon does not want to do is take his nap, no matter how many times his mother asks . . . until he gets tired, of course. Another darling gosling makes his debut in this spunky story, with Olivier Dunrea’s perfectly pitched storytelling and illustrations that Gossie & Friends fans have come to cherish.
It is 1943 in Tuscany, and Daniel Gideon, noted physician and international pacifist, kisses his wife Paola goodbye and heads off for his day in wartime Italy. On his way home, Gideon is intercepted by antifascist partisans and spared the fate that has befallen Paola and the rest of his family. The tragic events have been instigated by a bitter betrayal, and he must unwillingly live on the run with the partisans who saved him. Pacifist Gideon struggles as his deepest convictions are challenged, and as he pieces together the events that led to his family's tragedy, he must grapple with grief, rage, and a desire for revenge. After his death many years later, Gideon's story is discovered in a box of papers uncovered in a basement in Italy, and his estranged daughter Victoria is invited to Italy to attend a ceremony in Gideon's honor. During her stay, Victoria reads the papers and uncovers astonishing revelations about Gideon, her place in his heart and the betrayals to which he and Paola fell victim. And she is forced to contend with those who want a different version of history to prevail. By the end of her soul-searching journey, Victoria must decide whether she can honor her father's principles and legacy and still be true to herself.
