Borka: The Adventures of a Goose with No Feathers

Borka: The Adventures of a Goose with No Feathers Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Once upon a time there were two geese called Mr. and Mrs. Plumpster. Each spring they returned to the marshes of their ancestors, and Mrs. Plumpster layed her eggs. Soon six fine young Plumpsters hatched, but Borka was different—she had no feathers and could not fly. When winter came the other geese flew off in search of warmer climates, leaving Borka all alone. But her adventure was only just beginning.
