Description

 

Barbara Reid brings her signature Plasticine illustrations and a modern twist to this classic Grimm fairy tale — now in a leveled reader format with all-new text!

 

When Rupert does a good deed for a stranger, he is rewarded with a beautiful golden goose. He takes the bird into town to share his rare discovery, but the innkeeper's daughter tries to steal one of the golden feathers — and gets stuck to the goose! As Rupert makes his way through the town, each person who tries to interfere — including the bus driver, teacher, and farmer — gets stuck too. Can they find a way to break the spell, or will they be stuck in this crazy parade forever?

 

Barbara Reid's modern retelling of the favourite Grimm fairy tale is now available in a bright new leveled reader format, adapted for emerging readers with a completely new text.
