Agatha has her pleasant night's sleep disrupted by six cranky, cold, naked geese, who arrive on her doorstep to demand that Agatha return the feathers from her new feather bed. In a delightful O. Henry-inspired ending, Agatha arrives at a solution that benefits all, at the same time teaching readers to respect the delicate balance between our resources and responsibilities.
