This book is 6 x 8½ and has 24 pages. The illustrations were painted with gouache. The story is well told. Text and illustrations make for a lively telling of the fable. There is one new twist here. The owner, who gets a golden egg per day from his special goose, tries to get other geese to produce golden eggs. He also tries to get more than one per day from his special goose. The book's characteristic goose profile is excellent! It appears on the cover, the title-page, and the first page of the story. This book is the second that I have from Picture Window Books. I have The Fox and the Grapes from the Yellow Level. I just took the occasion to order the four other books I know are done by Picture Window Books.
