Agatha's Feather Bed: Not Just Another Wild Goose Story

by Carmen Agra Deedy


A delightful twist on the O. Henry classic "The Gift of the Magi," starring a weaver and six angry, naked geese. When children approach Agatha wanting to know the source of the beautiful fabrics in her weaving shop, she always recites a simple verse. "Everything comes from something, Nothing comes from nothing. Just like paper comes from trees, And glass comes from sand, An answer comes from a question. All you have to do is ask." Agatha spins yarn and weaves cloth like no other, and she's worked hard to sell enough wares to buy a brand-new feather bed. However, when six angry, naked geese show up to get their feathers back, Agatha must reckon with how precious resources can be.
