This is a beautiful tale, perfect for nestlings in the four to eight years of age range I should think. Hardbound, the illustrations by Doina Cociuba Terrano do justice to this story of a lame goose befriended by Jojo, a young boy determined to see him well again. Jojo takes Wascana to the vet, cares for him, nurtures him and does not abandon him to fate. This is a story of caring, watching out for others and friendship. I loved it. I let my middle and youngest grandnestlings read it and they loved it, as well.
The colors are lifelike and realistic. The story flows and the words are easy to read and yet challenging enough that that age range should not get easily bored with it. If you are looking for a nice book to gift this time of year for a nestling, especially one who loves animals, this would be positively perfect. You can find it on sale at Amazon now. Until tomorrow, I remain, your humble Book Dragon, Drakon T. Longwitten
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
