Mindi and the Goose No One Else Could See

Once there was a girl called Mindi who was afraid of something that no one else could see. This thing that she was afraid of, this thing that no one else could see, was a big goose. It came into her room as quietly as a thought comes into your head....

When a little girl named Mindi says she is being visited by a big goose — a scary creature that is visible only to her — her devoted dad and mom try everything they can think of to drive it away. But maybe some outside assistance is warranted from their wise friend Austen, a farmer who knows what is needed to help Mindi turn her mind to something new.

In a sensitive exploration of childhood fears, Sam McBratney, the author of Guess How Much I Love You, narrates with charm, wit, and a touch of whimsy, while Linda Ólafsdóttir’s delicate illustrations enhance the modern fairy-tale feel in a story that is sure to become a bedtime favorite.

"A young goat strolls into the kitchen, and Mindi asks its name. 'Oh, I have so many goats that I have run out of names,' Austen says. 'I would call her Black-and-Whitey,' Mindi says. 'Perfect,' he responds. And his solution to Mindi’s goose problem is similarly collaborative and respectful.... McBratney shows what it’s like to listen authentically to children — and to believe them." — Publishers Weekly
