Description

When the wild geese migrate over the little pond with its pink flamingos and clipped grass, Skylar and the others watch with envy. They like their pond, but there is something elegant and brave about being a real wild goose. But they?ve never flown before, and besides, there?s never been a reason to go.

Then a lost heron wants the pond geese to take him to Lost Pond, and Skylar thinks it?s time for this motley crew to spread their wings and try out the great blue yonder. Adventure awaits . . . but, as they?ll soon find out, so does great danger.

At once charming and funny, full of friendship, hardship, and bravery, this is a beautifully told story about leaving home to experience the world. With delightful black-and-white illustrations, and hints of Charlotte?s Web and The Tale of Despereaux, this is a book in the tradition of fine children?s literature.
