This is a beautiful little story of a little boy who tries out various wings from the wing shop in an effort to go to the old home his family have recently moved from. The wings, however, are not necessarily co-operative. The watercolour illustrations are imaginative and interesting enough to provoke further stories between the adult reading and the lucky child listening to this lovely little story.
I loved the illustrations, and the message. It's a quick fantasy that leads our main dude into adventure, and the realization that people are more important than places. Super sweet.
