Toulouse, the wise old Canada goose from the Chadwick series, stars in his own adventure in this picture book. As a youngster Toulouse wasn’t quite so wise, as he freely admits when he tells his nieces and nephews his story one crisp October day. Toulouse had gotten into mischief early—when he was just a newly hatched little yellow gosling—but nothing compared with the trouble he found on his first migration to Maryland. Separated from his family, he was left to find his own way south with a lost snow goose named Desdemona, who became his special friend for life. Their love story is one children and grownups alike will treasure.
