"A tender story of a girl's love of an animal in conflict with practical reality on a farm. In humorous repetition, Granddad's declaration of the goose being Christmas dinner, leads the reader to somehow root for the goose. Beautiful full page artwork captures the sensitivity and humor of the story. A story to be enjoyed year after year."--Southwest Ohio and Neighboring Libraries
