Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The British are coming! The American Revolution is being fought in the hills around Letty Wright’ s family’ s farm, and the Wrights must flee to safety. There is no time for Letty to bring Solomon the gander. Letty hopes the British don’ t hurt Solomon, but hungry soldiers aren’ t known for their kindness. Eight-year-old Letty tries the only thing she can think of to save him— and is as surprised as the other colonists when it works. Based on a remarkable, true story, this unusual tale will linger in the minds of all who read it.

Synopsis:

When Letty and her family must flee the farm in 1778 as British soldiers approach, she scribbles a desperate note begging for the life of her beloved goose, Solomon. Full color.
