Follow the Goose Butt is an early chapter book designed to appeal to grade 2 and up. Camelia Airheart is a loveable Canada Goose with a faulty GPS or Goose Positioning System. She also has trouble paying attention and quickly gets separated from her flock. When she gets lost, she starts on a journey around New Brunswick that will take her to meet a humpback whale in the Bay of Fundy, a herring gull on Grand Manan, a sandpiper/sanderling flock at the Hopewell Rocks, a lobster on the Acadian Pennisula, a moose and a chickadee on Mount Carleton, a deer near the Hartland Covered Bridge, and a beaver near Mactaquac. The language is rich; the situations are comical; and the illustrations are enchanting. The book has been well received by the target age group and the writers are already planning a prequel picture book where Camelia gets banded in the Tantramar Wetlands Centre and a sequel chapter book where Camelia gets lost all over Nova Scotia.
