The Stolen Egg is a fictional chapter book based on a true story about the Stroudwater geese, shown on the cover of the book. Emmett, a young goose, is blamed for something he did not do and is kicked out of his gaggle. Alone and afraid, he wanders into a yard where he meets the Beautiful Lady, who lovingly cares for him with the help of her big yellow dog, the four cats that come and go as they please, and the toilet trained rabbit. Still, Emmett misses Grampy and the rest of the geese. Will he ever see them again? The Stolen Egg takes place in the real life setting of the marshland along the Stroudwater River in Portland, Maine, where the gaggle has lived for many decades. Intended for ages 6 to 8, this high interest story will hold the attention of young readers right to its happy ending.
