Gargle the Goose combines elements of the mythical with everyday reality to create an entire goose culture. Gargle is a young Canada Goose who, like all of his fellow fledglings, dreams of being an important and respected leader in his “geesing” community. As a low-ranking member of his family’s gaggle, Gargle rashly attempts to hijack his family’s formation in their annual Great Migration to the south, with calamitous results. As a result, Gargle must navigate his way through the hostile world of goosy exile. In his wanderings over the course of one winter, Gargle meets an abandoned donkey, named Luckless, who becomes his vagabond traveling companion and fast friend. They become entangled in a number of perilous situations, particularly with a shady farmer and a shifty fox that spell deep trouble for them. Inspired by a prominent figure in geesing mythology, Gargle attempts to redeem himself through a selfless act. Included in the tale is a “Goosolalia” that explains the major terms and features of goosing society. Readers, both young and old, will delight in the playful use of language and the fully realized culture within the book. You won’t be able to put it down, and you’ll never look at migrating geese the same again.

About the Author:

Andrew Perry spent the first eighteen years of his life growing up in the small town of Spencerport, New York, along the banks of the Erie Canal. By all accounts, his childhood had a normal amount of exciting episodes and troubling incidents. He was once attacked by a goose while kayaking. At college in Oswego, Brockport and Cincinnati, his love of reading and writing led him to the decision that this might be a decent way to make a living. He was right. He teaches First Year Composition in the University Writing Program at the Rochester Institute of Technology, along the banks of the Genesee River. He lives with his beloved wife Kimberly and their inexcusably adorable dog, Tipsy, in a house that was built a long time ago where they eat and drink and enjoy life considerably. Gargle the Goose is Andrew’s first book. His fondest wish is that you fall as deeply in love with Gargle as he has.
