Summary
Sam, the unlucky farmer, brings home a goose for his wife to cook for dinner, but just as they are about to sit down to eat, a flock of geese flies through the window in an attempt to save their unfortunate companion.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Jan Wahl has retained the rhythmic, sly humor of this tall tale from Maryland told him by an old black man. When Sam Bombel goes out one day to hunt his dinner, he sees flying overhead a great big flock of geese, all singing: La lee loo. Come quilla, come quilla. Bang, bang, bang! Quilla bang. Readers' appetites will be whetted as they watch the farmer's wife pluck and roast the goose that Sam brings home. But just as he is about to stick his knife in that delicious-looking goose, swoosh, in through the window flies the whole flock to rescue the unlucky bird. Readers can sing the refrain to the music provided. Sterling Brown's rich, glossy oil paintings add drama to this brisk retelling of a cautionary tale.
