The Wawa Goose monument has stood in silence beside the Trans-Canada Highway for almost fifty years. Well, I figured it was time he woke up and had a life...and he is a he...I checked. (I asked his mother.) So I wrote this book, for young and old alike. In it, the Wawa Goose monument transforms, comes to life and takes flight, re-uniting with his parents and then joining his many friends at Fort Friendship. Book Cover - Wawa Goose
