How nice it would be to be different! Silly Suzy Goose thinks of all the things other animals do and she things how much she would love to stretch like a giraffe, to splash like an elephant, to jump like a kangaroo or to hang upside sown and flap like a bat. But, when Silly Suzy Goose is chased by a lion she experiences doing all of those things and soon finds out they are not so much fun after all! Suzy is best off at home – with all the other geese!
