about

Wheezer the Wire-Loose Goose is a bully who lives by himself. Wheezer’s egg was found on the shore and rolled into the almost full nest of a resentful mother goose. When Wheezer hatched, she pushed him out into the world. She had her own babies to care for. Wheezer is rejected by the flock as a no good foundling. He retaliates by doing outrageous things that hurt and scare them. Seeing the flock react to his torment makes Wheezer feel powerful. Children will identify with Wheezer’s search for self-worth and rejoice with him as he finds it. His courage and ultimate reward have special meaning for stragglers, strugglers, and non-conformists. B. Jane Lloyd wrote this story 25 years ago for some of her adopted children who struggled with feelings of rejection. They knew how much she loved them. She reassured them that their birthparents also loved them, but couldn't take care of them and wanted the best for them. All of that love could not erase the unspoken worry that they were somehow unworthy. A doctor told Lloyd not to adopt one child because he had “wires loose in his brain” and would be violent his whole life. A hearing test soon showed that the child was deaf. His bad behavior was a result of frustration at his inability to communicate. Another child was seriously injured by a bully as a teenager. He sought solace in a group of troublemakers and ended up on the wrong side of the law. Lloyd pondered the question, "Where did my children come from?" She heard these words in her heart: "They were thoughts in the mind of God … and God’s thoughts are always GOOD." She wondered how many other “problem" children had been mistreated, misdiagnosed or misunderstood. As she meditated on the subject, Wheezer the Wire-Loose Goose appeared. Wheezer introduced himself, his flock and friends to her while she transcribed his story. Although written as a bedtime story or chapter book for children, Wheezer the Wire-Loose Goose appeals to all ages. Wheezer’s positive philosophy is easily understood and, when practiced, promises life-changing results. Lloyd’s poems, articles and letters have been published in various periodicals. She lives in the midwest U.S. with her husband/best friend. Their children, grandchildren and grand-dogs live nearby. A large extended family and zany friends provide stability and delight. You'll find many of them reflected in Lloyd’s books.
