A fun book, but rather sad in places. worth reading, tho.

Take my advice...read these books in order. I'm not sure how any of them would do as a stand-alone.

At last I'm Flyyyyyyying!
It all started when Georgia discovered she could jump down 12 steps in 2 big grafeful bounds. Next, to her delight she found that jumping from the porch and floating as high as the rooftop was possible too. So when the mysterious Canada goose appeared at her window one night, it seemed natural for Georgia to climb on his back and go off with him to learn to really fly. But no one wants Georgia to fly- and one person, that horrible Ralph Preek, will stop at nothing to prevent Georgie's lovely goose prince from coming.
