Corina lives with her grandparents in Shepody Bay. One day close to Christmas, a big storm blows in an injured Canada goose. Corina immediately warms to the bird and wants to nurse it back to health, but her grumpy grandfather wants to cook the goose for Christmas dinner. The bird gets up to all kinds of mischief--spooking the cows while Granddad is milking them, sabotaging Christmas decorations, and eating all of Grandma's pies. Can Corina keep the cheeky bird safe from her curmudgeonly grandfather?

Award-winning author Jennifer McGrath Kent's story and Ivan Murphy's humorous and energetic illustrations combine to make this a charming Christmas tale.
