About the Book

The British are coming! Based on a remarkable true story, this unusual beginning reader will linger in the minds of all who read it.

The American Revolution is being fought in the hills around Letty Wright’s family’s farm, and the Wrights must flee to safety.

There is no time for Letty to bring Solomon the gander. Letty hopes the British don’t hurt Solomon, but hungry soldiers aren’t known for their kindness.

Eight-year-old Letty tries the only thing she can think of to save him—and is as surprised as the other colonists when it works.

An entertaining read for early-elementary units on the American Revolution.

The 18 Penny Goose is a Level Three I Can Read book. Level 3 includes many fun subjects kids love to read about on their own. Themes include friendship, adventure, historical fiction, and science. Level Three books are written for early independent readers. They include some challenging words and more complex themes and stories.
