Little girl Geogie leans out the window, looking at the geese group flying over, and wishes she could fly freely. Incredibly, a goose comes to the window, to help her achieve the pure but luxury dream: fly through the prairie, over the trees, came over the pond... But her families are worried very much, the neighbors doubt her, and some in her town want to hunt the wild goose. What is the fate of Geogie and the goose? The Fledgling is the authors gift to the famous philosopher Henry Thoreau. In Walden lake, prince goose is the embodiment of spirit of Thoreau, but Geogies flying dream awakens us to close to nature, and more care my childhood dream and naivety.

It all started when Georgie, hardly more than a wisp of thistledown, discovered she could jump down twelve steps in two big graceful bounds. Next, to her great delight, she learned that jumping from the porch and floating as high as the rooftop was possible too. So when the mysterious Canada goose came to her window one night it seemed only natural to climb onto his back and go off with him to learn how to really fly.
