An inspiring picture book that celebrates friendship and encourages children to recognise their own unique skills.

Synopsis

Wings! by Paul Stewart

The sky is full of birds and ALL of them are SWOOPING AND SOARING...except Penguin. I wish I could fly! says Penguin sadly. Owl, Parrot and the other birds try their best to help, but NOTHING seems to get their friend off the ground! How can Penguin achieve his deepest desire, and fly?

Reviews

Paul Stewart's delightful tale of discovering your own special talents, even though they may be different from those around you, is brought to life by Jane Porter's beautiful collage illustrations. Penguin's deepest desire has always been to fly but everything goes wrong. It is only when penguin falls into the sea that he discovers a different way to fly. This heart-warming picture book shows children that everyone has something they're good at. It's simply a matter of finding what it is. -- Chris Riddell Guardian Deliciously funny, artfully constructed collage style pictures. Books for Keeps A fantastic book of friendship and working together, with some truly stunning papercraft illustrations. Read It, Daddy I love this story, which is beautifully illustrated by Jane Porter - she depicts all the birds for us so well, and they are utterly delightful
