    I still love this book after twenty years

    I've just turned thirty-three and still love this story. I had a lot in common with the main character Georgie, and grew up with strange but well-meaning step-parents and my own painfully shy personality. I probably read this story over and over as a kid, and have just recently re-discovered it. This story still touches my heart, and it is an easy but still intelligent read if you decide to read it for the first time, or revisit one of your most beloved childhood stories.

    My favorite book

    Although I am past the age which this book is intended for, it was my favorite book as a kid. I could totally relate to the main character, Georgie, and even dreamed of riding a goose someday. Ever since reading this book, when I hear the Canadian geese fly over my house every year, I think of this story. Even though I have gotten rid of my 'kid' books, I still keep this one, to remind me of the spirit in everyone.

    Highly recommended

    If you have a sensitive 10-12 year old daughter, like my 10 yo, this is a must buy. She loved the characters in the book and felt empathy for the Goose.

    the Fledgling

    The Fledgling is an amazing story.Jane Langton was very careful in her book.She made the sounds and feelings come to life. it starts out as a boring and the becomes very adventurous and has a big twist in the end.Ms.Langton did an amazing job on her book and i think you should get this book because of the action in it and you'd understand if you read it.

    READ THE FLEDGLING,
    Amelia

    Very, very good and unique book!

    This is one of my favorite books of all-time. It's such a unique plot...I was really kept reading by it. The characters are really uniquely layered, you actually care about their feelings. I never would have dreamed of a book like this--I'm VERY glad that my fourth-grade teacher had it in his bookshelves. GREAT BOOK!
