Once there was a goose called Katerina…
Katerina was the only goose on her pond, and this made her very sad and rather lonely.
Sometimes she thought she could see another goose in the side of the bank manager, Mr Buswell’s shiny car. She would stare and stare at it, hoping that one day that goose would come out and join her on the pond.
“Just look at that silly bird!” said Mr Buswell. But everyone liked Katerina no matter what he said.
One dark Christmas night when everyone was at a party in the square, Katerina woke alone. She went to see the goose in the shiny car, but the goose had gone – had he come out at last? And who was that man with the goose-sized bag coming out of the bank? Was he carrying a goose-sized companion for Katerina? When Katerina stops him to find out, she becomes the local heroine and gains a wonderful reward – life on her pond will never be the same again…

Judith Kerr is one of the finest children's illustrators , combining clever storytelling with subtly witty illustration that makes for perfect bedtime reading for the little ones. In The Other Goose, Judith Kerr does a splendid job telling the tale of a rather dappy, lovable goose called Katerina, who is absolutely certain that she can see another goose in the side of Mr Buswell's shiny car. All her efforts to catch up with the other goose fail miserably, but one night just before Christmas she wakes to find someone coming towards her carrying a goose-sized bag... could it be that the mysterious bag contains her mysterious, disappearing companion? Or is there something more sinister in the air?
The Other Gooseis a gentle, funny story filled with just about enough suspense for a small child's nerves to take , and more than enough humour to keep them (not to mention the grown-up who will inevitably end up reading it over and over again!) happy, smiling and begging for more.--Susan HarrisonFrom the Back Cover:
Katerina was the only goose on her pond and she was lonely. The other goose in the side of the shiny car never came out. Then one snowy Christmas, Katerina was determined to find out…
Katerina is a wonderful new character from the creator of 'Mog the Forgetful Cat' and 'The Tiger Who Came to Tea.' This charming goose is set to join Mog, that loveable but bothersome cat and the big, furry, stripy tiger as a children's favourite.
