Borka : The Adventures of a Goose with No Feathers
by John Burningham and John Burningham




Overview -
Odd appearances don't get in the way of adventure in a jubilant new edition of John Burningham's very first picture book, back by popular demand.

Mr. and Mrs. Plumpster are delighted when their six eggs hatch into adorable baby goslings. But one has them worried: Borka, who was born without feathers. The doctor encourages Mrs. Plumpster to knit Borka a fuzzy sweater, but while it helps keep out the cold, it doesn't keep all the other young geese from teasing Borka -- until, come migration day, her siblings fly off without her. What is the tearful goose to do? In a brand-new edition of his debut book for children --awarded a prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal in 1963 -- the incomparable John Burningham turns a sad beginning into a whimsical tale of pluck and serendipity, kindness and kindred spirits, as he celebrates the rare birds among us.
