A gentle and beautiful book about slowing down and growing up, featuring a 10-year-old boy and his uncle

10-year-old Clancy and his bird-watching Uncle Egg embark on a 10-day paddling trip down the Australian Glenelg River. Along the way Clancy learns about different species of birds and is surprised to learn how much he enjoys slowing down in this life-changing and learning experience. Illustrated in the style of a graphic novel, this tender and sweetly drawn tale about a boy and his uncle's canoe trip is sure to inspire a love of nature and the environment in young children.
