Henrietta likes her quiet life. A morning swim, a cup of tea--all is serene.
But everything changes when she bumps her head and winds up with a goose egg--a REAL goose egg. Henrietta tries to return the baby goose to the nest, but her flock has flown. It's up to Henrietta to raise her.
Goose isn't anything like Henrietta. She's flappy, and noisy, and exhausting. But Henrietta raises that goose right. She teaches her to swim, and to honk, and to fly. When Goose flies off with the other geese, Henrietta is so proud!
And then . . . lonely. How quiet her life feels now.
But the love you give has a way of coming back to you. And Henrietta has a wonderful surprise in store. . . .
