Haymarket Books and Edelweiss gave me the opportunity to read this book for review (thank you).  It has been published and you can get a copy now.

When the egg hatches, the gosling is bigger than her others and looks dirty.  He's good at getting eels for the leader of the animals.  But as time goes on, everyone turns against him.  So he flies out of the barnyard and ends up in swampy ground.
