Geese scene summary After learning how do fly from being an owl, the Wart is turned it a goose. The Wart, now in the form of a goose, is magically transported to a very vast plain, which seems to be out in the middle of nowhere. The Wart quickly meets another goose, who says her name is Lyo-lyok. Wart, acting a bit strange due his inexperience as a goose, is made fun of by Lyo-lyok.
