"Mr. and Mrs. Plumpster are delighted when their six eggs hatch into adorable baby goslings. But one has them worried: Borka, who was born without feathers. The doctor encourages Mrs. Plumpster to knit Borka a fuzzy sweater, but while it helps keep out the cold, it doesn't keep all the other young geese from teasing Borka --until, come migration day, her siblings fly off without her. What is the tearful goose to do? In a brand-new edition of his debut book for children --awarded a prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal in 1963 --the incomparable John Burningham turns a sad beginning into a whimsical tale of pluck and serendipity, kindness and kindred spirits, as he celebrates the rare birds among us."--publisher's description.
