FAIR OAKS, Calif., June 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Barbara Klide announced today that the third book completing her trilogy, Along Came Ryan…the Little Gosling King Volume III, Free the Geese, will be released December 2019. Volumes I and II will be available for purchase at the California State Fair Author Booth on Sundays, July 14, 21, and 28, 12 to 8 pm and on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.


Barbara Klide Author of the trilogy, Along Came Ryan...the Little Gosling King, Volumes I, II, and III.


Mother Goose and her six new goslings, Along Came Ryan...the Little Gosling King, Volume III, Free the Geese. Due out December 2019.

"I am excited to debut my books Along Came Ryan…the Little Gosling King, Volumes I and II," stated Barbara Klide. "It was a privilege to know the mated pair of Canada Geese, Mother Goose and Hawkeye, for three years in a row and I want kids, adults and educators, who love animals, to read this remarkable saga."

Volume I of Along Came Ryan…the Little (Gosling) King, is a charming slice of life about a pair of noble, sensitive, protective, and immensely lovable Canada Geese and their single golden gosling, Ryan, who survived a frightening raid by a hawk. They shared lessons of friendship, family, tolerance, survival and the joys of life at a place of business where people adored them! 

The second volume, subtitled The Return of the Geese, highlights Rainbow, River, Ridge, and Rebel who hatched the following year. A kindly maintenance manager oversaw the geese and the "woman with a camera" again memorialized the stories in photos and words.

To provide educational context, Barbara researched extensively from the Audubon Society, the California Rice Commission and many other sources, some who are recipients, of the book's profits.
