Charlie Sparrow has no idea he can fly. It's no wonder—in Tree City, none of the birds do. When Charlie seeks out the secret behind his feathers, Doctor Nightingale claims he has a dangerous childhood disease, the cure for which is feather plucking. Charlie will do anything to find out the truth, even disobey the adults who think they know what's best for him.
This new edition of the entertaining and inspiring chapter book for kids ages 6-9 has over thirty illustrations by Daniel McCloskey.
