Sweet, silly Petunia the goose comes upon Charles, who is being fattened for Christmas dinner. She decides to save him, and how she ends up doing that makes for a sweet little tale of selflessness. Vibrant 50's artwork add to its appeal. A very charming little story that your kids will enjoy, to say nothing of you, too.
