The Brothers Grimm's classic fairly tale sees new life in this enhanced eBook version, that renders the original illustrations by Leslie Brooke & text in a tastefully redesigned digital version with soft pastel colors. KiteReaders' The Golden Goose version also includes read along audio for kids to follow along the story if they are too young to read the book by themselves. The story synopsis: because of a kind deed, a simpleton receives a goose with feathers of pure gold. But when anyone comes too close to the goose, they get Hokety, pokety, stickety, stuck and have to follow the simpleton wherever he goes. The more people who get stuck, the funnier the procession becomes, until the simpleton inadvertently wins over a princess.
