Publisher's Summary

A hunter is out and hears some geese flying in formation overhead. They are singing! He shoots one of them, and it falls from the sky but continues singing. He brings it home, and he and his wife pluck out its feathers. As each feather is plucked, it flies out the window. They put the goose in the oven, and they can still hear it singing from inside the oven. After a while they bring out the goose and put it on a platter on their dining table. Just then the flock of singing geese come flying through the window. They are carrying the cooked goose's feathers and stick them back into the goose, who joins the song and flies out with the flock. The hunter gives up hunting geese after that.

Hilarious Goose Tale 😂

The more I listen to these folktales by Bill Gordh, the more I love them. This one is an American story of geese flying overhead and singing. The hunter shoots one, brings it home to his wife, and they pluck it clean, pop it into the oven, where it continues to sing! Also whilst they were plucking, the feathers took flight out the window 😊. As they place the cooked goose onto the table, ready to enjoy it for dinner, the rest of the geese appear, carrying the plucked feathers and proceed to reattach them to the cooked goose 😜. Refeathered, the cooked goose begins to sing and joins the flock and they together take flight out the window! Afterwards the hunter, wisely I might say, swears off hunting. 😂
