Publisher's Summary

It all started when Georgie, hardly more than a wisp of thistledown, discovered she could jump down twelve steps in two big graceful bounds. Next, to her great delight, she learned that jumping from the porch and floating as high as the rooftop was possible too. So when the mysterious Canada goose appeared at her window one night it seemed only natural to climb onto his back and go off with him to learn how to really fly. But no one wants Georgie flying. And one person, that horrible Ralph Preek, will stop at nothing to prevent Georgie's lovely Goose Prince from coming.


What the Critics Say

"This gentle, exquisite story...speaks of that tentative step from the innocence of childhood to the acceptance of growth and change." (School Library Journal)
