Are We There Yet?

By Mary Vigliante Szydlowski

Children's | Paperback, eBook


Arthur isn't happy! His family and flock are flying south for the winter. But Arthur doesn't want to go. He'd rather stay where he is. But he has no choice in the matter…winter is coming! He has to go, whether he likes it or not. Flight School is tough. Getting off the ground isn't nearly as easy as it looks. Flying is hard work. Arthur especially doesn't like having to fly in V formation all the time. It's boring! Arthur would rather circle, swoop, and dive. Take time to enjoy the scenery. Or fly off by himself to grab a snack or explore. When he doesn't get his way, Arthur pouts and sulks. The flock is annoyed by his antics. They're behind schedule because of him. When Arthur isn't whining…he's complaining. He hates the brown yucky food. He hates having to follow the stupid rules. He hates the flock…everyone bossing him around and telling him what to do all the time. But most of all…he hates migrating! There's no time to play or have fun. But sometimes fun can get you into trouble. Big trouble! Along the way, Arthur encounters power lines, windmills, decoys, hunters, doughnuts, stampeding children, a mean old lady, and a nasty grey gander. It takes a raging river and a scary night alone to make Arthur change his ways.
