it was ok
bookshelves: children-young-adult

** spoiler alert ** ***children's book---I was looking for a interesting read out loud for my next reading class. THe title interested me because I always look for something to entertain or inspire students. This one fell a little short.

To be specific: A boy is turned into a goose by a witch and has to do three good deeds in order to turn back into a goose. It got a little depressing. He did two deeds then the witch dies. He expects to stay a goose forever. His last unsurprising deed is to cover the dead witch up and that was his 3rd and final deed to break the spell. He doesn't even seem to learn much from the lesson. Boring. Usually this author has much more adventure in her plot.
