BORKA: The Adventures of a Goose with no Feathers – 16 June

Borka, the goose, is different from her brothers and sisters, she has no feathers! When her family fly south for the winter, Borka, begins her own journey of discovery, making new friends, understanding it’s ok to be different, and ultimately finding her forever home.
