    "The Goose is an interesting children book but I do not think it can be categorized as LDS romance book. The book may be categorized as fairy tale or even fantasy science fiction but I would not call it a romance book and it has nothing to do with LDS."

I was looking for something exciting and magical to share with them while they read to themselves at night. I found this amazing book called "The Goose Girl (Books of Bayern)" which is an young adult fantasy and fiction novel by Shannon Hale that tells the story of Princess Anidori-Kiladra Talianna Isilee and glorious ability to magically communicate with birds.

    "Nice rework of a Grimm's fairy tale. The story is well written, and quite creative in its own way. That being said, I cannot recommend the rest of the books in the series, especially the second book (Enna Burning as there is a scene where she almost gets raped and is manipulated - not appropriate for a pre-teen and young teen audience which would be its readers."

    "A magical retelling of the Grimms's fairy tale of the princess who became a goose girl before she could become queen. Anidori-Kiladra Talianna Isilee, Crown Princess of Kildenree, is born with the ability to speak to animals, a gift that is nurtured by her aunt. It is the first book in the Books of Bayern series fantasy novel by Shannon Hale."

    "This book seems like a great story for any young person that wants a story about a fantasy genre. Most the people who read this book that left review on Amazon give it mostly good reviews. However only 500 people have read this book, so this should not be categorized as a best book."

    "This is a good solution to the topic. This books fits the criteria of having 'girl' in the title. The book has a very good rating with over 500 reviews and was written by a new york times best seller. The book is geared more towards a younger audience as well. Books are very subjective but does seem to be a good solution to the topic. "

    "The Goose Girl by Shannon Hale is a retelling of the Grimm Brothers' fairy tale of the same name. A princess must disguise herself as a goose girl until she is ready to take her rightful place as the wife of the kingdom's prince. The best thing about this book is the character development. The protagonist starts out as as a bit of a loner, and as a princess, she has people to take care of her every need. As a commoner, she has to be more self-sufficient, and to interact with people and make friends. I greatly enjoyed this book, and I'm certainly not in the target audience. Some parents may find some of the material in this book a bit mature for their kids."

    "I ran across this book while looking for a good fairytell book to give my niece. The book itself is about a young girl who has the interesting ability to talk to birds. It's a rather entertaining book and is part of a series of books that continues the story of the young princess and her strange bird talking ability. The story gets more interesting as it progresses as the main character becomes sort of a rebellious young leader though she ends up in desolation after her mutiny in a foreign land. It's worth giving a read especially if you like romantic novels about empowered female characters. "
