The Goose Girl
(Books of Bayern #1)

by Shannon Hale


Summary from Goodreads:

"Anidori-Kiladra Talianna Isilee, Crown Princess of Kildenree, spends the first years of her life under her aunt's guidance learning to communicate with animals. As she grows up Ani develops the skills of animal speech, but is never comfortable speaking with people, so when her silver-tongued lady-in-waiting leads a mutiny during Ani's journey to be married in a foreign land, Ani is helpless and cannot persuade anyone to assist her. Becoming a goose girl for the king, Ani eventually uses her own special, nearly magical powers to find her way to her true destiny. Shannon Hale has woven an incredible, original and magical tale of a girl who must find her own unusual talents before she can become queen of the people she has made her own."

This is my favorite book ever!

Incredible writing, amazing plot, magnificent characters! Need I say more?

I've always loved Grimm Tales and Shannon Hale's version of the Goose Girl was an absolutely superb creation and I never get tired of reading it again and again... and again and again!
