The Simple Art Of Flying

The Simple Art of Flying / Cory Leonardo

Alastair, an African Grey parrot born in a pet shop, dreams of escaping the pet shop with his beloved, sickly sister, Aggie, and flying south where they can live in palm trees. Alastair’s plans are always foiled and he winds up with two broken wings. While he’s trying to recover, Aggie gets adopted by the shop’s assistant, Fritz. Alastair vows to reunite with his sister and take care of her – despite the fact that he too is adopted by an elderly woman he has grown fond of, he can’t fly, and he doesn’t exactly know where any palm trees are. For grades 3-7.
