In this modern fairy tale, a girl whose father seems lost at sea takes comfort from his story of a magical goose that shelters his ship during storms, ensuring his safe passage. When a goose turns up on shore, injured and wrapped in netting, it’s an ominous sign, but the girl opts for faith and cares for the bird. Glowing, imaginative touches, like “shoals of silver flakes,” ignite the book’s enchanting illustrations as the cared-for bird leads the grieving girl to peace.
