Borka: The Adventures of a Goose With No Feathers

by barker_patricia (WorldCat user published 2018-12-18) Very Good Permalink

This is a very sad story with a very happy ending. Kids are going to fall in love with Borka, a goose with no feathers. Some might even be able to relate to the story, as they too are different from others. Cute illustrations.
