A frisky goose dashes about the farmyard, freeing chickens, horses, sheep, and cattle--and creating the sort of glorious chaos that is this inimitable illustrator's specialty. Adults can't figure out what prompted the goose's extraordinary behavior, but the children know: ""When the goose got loose/My brother knew why./He heard the wild geese flying high. . ."" Peace is restored in time for bed and swirling dreams of flight. Comically exaggerated events, energetic rhyming text, and rambunctious pictures complement each other perfectly.
