There was once a boy who discovered he could fly. He kept this a secret, though, until one night when Wozzini, a traveling showman, saw him take to the sky.
Soon, wearing eagle wings crafted by Wozzini, the boy becomes the star attraction of the show and a legend is born. But fame doesn't make the boy happy, for he misses his home and family. Now, just when he must make a decision about what to do, the boy finds himself in danger, his secret threatened.
Evocatively illustrated in warm, rich tones, this is a haunting and touching story with just the right amount of magic.
