    Review quote
    "Polacco's characteristic illustrations in warm brown, peach, and green capture the vulnerability of the unwanted boy, the beauty of the wild geese, and the solid strength and loving warmth of Stephanie Michele". -- Kirkus Reviews
    Back cover copy
    "We could all fly once. We just forgot how. If we'd think hard enough, we'd remember".Fondo is an orphan. His life is sad and lonely -- until he meets Stephanie Michele. She takes care of the geese who live on the shore of Lake Merritt, and when Fondo shows up there one day, she lets him help. Before long they are a team, working side by side. They are kindred spirits -- they both love the little blind goose who lives by the lake, and they both can hear the sun. But now the geese are preparing to fly south for the winter, and Fondo says that they've invited him to join them. It seems impossible, but sometimes faith and hope are enough to accomplish a miracle.
