Summary
"Michael Quetting shares the heartwarming true story of how he became a father to seven rambunctious goslings -- and the surprising things he learned along the way. Starting at the beginning, with the eggs, the journey takes the geese from the comfort of the incubator to the challenges of the airstrip, where, in the name of scientific research, they must learn to soar behind their adoptive father's ultralight aircraft. Packed with charm and humour, Papa Goose quickly draws us into the adventure as Gloria, Nemo, and the rest of the crew conquer land, water, and air."--Book jacket
