Will’s Quill

Our rating: ****

Willoughby Waddle is a goose who lives in old England. One day, tired of doing the same things all the time, he decides to go to London. After having several bad, sometimes frightening, experiences, Willowby meets up with a kind man. Later that night, Willoughby is able to repay the man for his kindness in a way only a goose could.

Will’s Quill is a great book to enjoy on your own or to read aloud to someone else. I think that my favorite part has to be when Willoughby tries to “rescue” his friend. The results are quite funny. If you enjoy Will’s Quill, you should check out some of Don Freeman’s other books, several of which are still in print.
