Tilly is a one-of-a-kind silly goose. She makes the other barnyard animals laugh with her silly antics. She takes a bath in apple juice. She tries to ride the famer's cat. Is Tilly too silly. The other barnyard animals start to complain. Silly stops entertaining them with her antics. Soon the animals realize it has been a long time since they had a good laugh. They urge Tilly to go back to her old ways. Eileen Spinelli's story and David Slonim's illustrations are a perfect match!
