Fly Away Peter by Frank Dickens


Fly Away Peter by Frank Dickens

A classic gem from the 60's brought up-to-date while maintining a wonderful retro feel. Jeffrey the giraffe with the short neck, and Peter,the bird who can't fly, are delighted to become friends because they are both different. When they decide to play together to cheer each other up, they hardly expect that a game of hide-and-seek will not only involve all the other animals but surprisingly solve their problems.
