by Harriet Lila Baker
Adventurous, curious, and feisty, Boyduck Goose enjoys his idyllic life on the farm with the horses, the riding students, and Miss Lila and Mr. Sam. More like a family pet than just another of the barnyard animals, he literally “rules the roost.” However, unlike other geese, he prefers to ride in Mr. Sam’s truck rather than swim in the creek or pond!
Follow along with Boyduck Goose as he grows up to be a goose (his “parents” thought he was a duck!) and learns human and goosey (and horsy!) things as well as gets into his fair share of trouble as he explores his world. If it weren’t for his friend “Copper” and his “parents,” Miss Lila and Mr. Sam, poor Boyduck would have found himself without feathers before his first birthday!
Humorous, uplifting, and based on true stories of the real Boyduck Goose: His Life and Times, Harriet Lila Baker has created charming books for animal lovers of all ages.
