Pretty picturebook ... Treacy creates memorable visual imagery of distinctive Irish landmarks, but she pays special care to her characterisation of Barney, with his easily spotted red bobble hat. The circular structure makes for a comforting final double-page spread, which will have young readers hankering for Irish adventures of their own - * Irish Times *

just might help keep your young children (or grandchildren) happy - * The Avondhu *

Children's Books Ireland CEO Elaina Ryan recommends Barney Goose: 'lovely warm character ... sweet little bird with a red woolly hat ... follows his journey up the entire island ... seeing such lovely parts of the country as he goes' ... Especially timely as 'you can't go anywhere but it's nice to see some beautiful bits of our island' - * Ireland AM, Virgin *

I liked the part where he soared over the hills of Donegal because it made his heart happy and I'm from Donegal so it makes me happy too ... My favourite bit was when the geese flew across the Atlantic Ocean to Greenland past the Northern Lights. The Northern Lights looked cool and Barney never felt so happy ... I would give this book 10/10 for a lovely story and great illustrations' By Eilis, 3rd Class, St. Conal's National School, Narin, Portnoo, Co. Donegal -* Seomra Ranga *

A charming and attractive picturebook giving lots of clever nods to tourist attractions along the Wild Atlantic Way ... the illustrations capture the blues, greens and greys of the Irish landscape beautifully - * Irish Independent *

This wet and windy journey follows the playful Barney and his red knitted hat on a trip to see the great flora and fauna of the Wild Atlantic Way. Carol Ann Treacy's flair for maximalist illustration packs every page with landmarks, animals and imagery that fully immerses the reader in every spread. This book will transport the reader to the west coast and is perfect for curious young explorers - *Children's Books Ireland *
