`All birds are born to fly,' thinks Baby Bird, watching the other hatchlings leave the nest. `I suppose it's now or never...' But one of Baby's wings is twisted and shrunken and not at all like the other one. Instead of flying, Baby plummets to the ground. There, Baby makes a new friend, and learns that sometimes you have to find unexpected ways to achieve your dreams. A moving story about the power of friendship and the importance of accepting yourself just the way you are, this lovely watercolour picture book shows how friends can help you overcome difficulty.
