About a Book - The Fledgling
Georgie Hall wishes she could fly. Everyone knows Georgie's kind of a dreamy girl, but no one expects she will actually get her wish when she befriends a wild goose stopping over with his flock. Georgie loves her Goose Prince, brings him presents, and the Goose Prince shows her how to fly. Flying is dangerous, though - especially when there are people in town like Mr. Preek who has his sight set on hunting Georgie's Goose Prince.
A Newbery Honor Book, Jane Langton's fantasty The Fledgling is a wonderful story for any day, and a perfect story for a day in fall.
