Description

Rupert is rewarded with a golden goose after he does a good deed. Then he takes the bird into town to share his rare discovery. When the innkeeper's daughter tries to steal a feather, she gets stuck, as do all the townsfolk the school bus driver, the barber, and more who try to free her. Rupert makes his way through town until his strange parade makes Leroy King's daughter laugh at last and everyone lives happily ever after. Governor General's Award-winner Barbara Reid's Plasticine genius brings a humorous twist and a modern setting to the classic Grimm's fairy tale!

Editorial Review

"An irresistible retelling... Reid's trademark Plasticine art seems to have reached a new pitch of vivacity and fun." (Toronto Star) "Colour, texture, and careful attention to the most minute detail make [the illustrations] a joy to behold. Highly recommended." (Canadian Book Review Annual) "The Golden Goose is Reid's best yet. Outstanding!" (St. Catharines Standard/Guelph Mercury)
