Text and illustrations work together to create a meaningful story that’s playful and fun…Thoughtful compositions keep eyes moving across spreads, offering readers the sensation of traveling. This convivial and gentle story about differences is a needed addition to collections about challenging the norm or upending physical expectations.

Gary proves a savvy and resourceful bird, and it’s refreshing to see his character embrace adventure rather than simply wish for the ability to fly.
The artwork is endearing…Parents, teachers, and librarians will love the message that it’s OK to be different. A solid choice for a storytime or one-on-one sharing.

This story passes with flying colors—a charmer through and through.
