I read this book to my class this year. Loved the premise - Howard is a boy who doesn't always consider others' feelings, and when he taunts an old witch she turns him into a goose. The only way for Howard to break the curse and become a boy again is to do three good deeds.

Overall, I was a bit disappointed in the execution of the idea. It fit in very well with our second grade kindness projects, and was a good read aloud in conjunction with those. I just wish the writing had been more compelling and engaging, but will probably read it again to second graders.
