The Goose that Almost Got Cooked
by Marc Simont

A Canada goose gets waylaid & decides to take shelter at a farm, where she joins a group of well-fed domestic geese. One day, she notices one of the other geese is missing, & she realises the reason the farmer feeds them all so well is that they're just being fattened for the pot! She narrowly & bravely escapes, & successfully rejoins her friends in the wilderness

Reviews:

A tale to savour, beautifully illustrated

It is wonderful to read about this daring Canada goose who delights in doing her own thing

Masterly illustrations blend humour & suspense in this tale of an adventurous goose who narrowly avoids the roasting pan

It handles a difficult topic with grace in an age-appropriate way. When the Canada goose regains her flight & flees the people who would turn her into a main course, we are shown that everyone wants to be free

It will stimulate interesting discussions about the way we treat other creatures & if this is how they would like to be treated

A fun read for younger kids. It has a pretty intense plot & keeps you turning the next page to find out what happens to the goose

I like this book because younger children can look at the pictures & understand the story
