The Golden Goose by Dick King-Smith
King-Smith Babe: The Gallant Pig shapes a taut, tidy tale of a down-and-out farmer whose luck changes dramatically after his goose lays a golden egg. As the novel opens, the author paints a drolly dim portrait of life at Woebegone Farm, where it always rained at harvest time, and Farmer John Skint's "cows often got foul-in-the-foot, Yet, the two soon hatch a golden gosling, and life becomes jolly indeed the farmer names it Joy. Stroking the feathered newborn, the farmer and his wife swell with happiness and their worries disappear.
Farmer Skint has no luck on his farm until one day his goose lays a golden egg, which hatches out into a golden gosling. From that moment on, Farmer Skint is a lucky man. As the bird gets older, her golden feathers turn to ordinary white, but the first egg she lays is a golden one.
