In het Bos, is a beautifully published collection of 20 short stories by various authors with illustrations by well-known illustrators.

Sonder lives with her father and her goose in a meadow by the sea, near the forest.
Vliegen gaat niet van zelf, page 41 Helen van Vliet
Sonder has a goose, which cannot fly, but follows her all day long. Even though she's sure her goose will one day be able to fly she calls her goose Flynot.
Secretly, Sonder hopes that she can learn to fly herself. She has dreamed a few times that she is floating above the dune with Flynot and when this happens she always wakes up happy, feeling a little light-headed.
Concerned, Sonder held Flynot tightly with one hand and clutched a branch with her other hand.

''All right then. You have it your way. I flew a little and then I fell. The hardest thing about flying is staying in the air. But soon I will manage that.'
