Katerina is sad because she's the only goose in town, but sometimes she sees another goose in the side of a shiny car. She thinks: "One day that goose will come out. Then I'll no longer be the only goose on the pond." Suddenly one day . . . it does! Full color.
Katerina is the only goose on her pond, and she's very lonely. Sometimes she thinks she can see another goose in the side of Mr. Buswell's shiny car. She stares and stares, hoping the other goose will come out and join her on the pond. One dark Christmas night, when everyone is at a party in the square, Katerina goes to see the goose in the shiny car. But the goose is gone—has he come out at last? And who is that man with the goose-sized bag coming out of the bank? Is he carrying a goose-sized companion for Katerina? When Katerina chases him down to find out, she becomes the local heroine and gets a wonderful reward—life on her pond will never be the same again.
