This picture book is based on a true story in the author's life. Amidst the geese that land at a pond is one which has only one leg. As the girl narrating the story sees, life is difficult for this goose. But the goose learns to balance and nibble grasses while doing so. Then the goose learns once again how to swim. And then this goose and all the other geese fly away for the winter.
When the flock of geese returns, the goose with one leg is among them. And she has a mate. And her life continues in a normal way, resulting in a flock of ducklings. An inspiring story, very well told and illustrated.
