Charlie Sparrow and The Secret of Flight – Review
Have you ever met a bird who didn’t know he could fly?
Can you envision a whole town filled with birds who believe they have arms, not wings!
Imagine what life in Tree City – the place they call home – must be like!
In Charlie Sparrow and The Secret of Flight, David Anderson has created a delightful world that you and your children will want to visit again and again!
In this book, you’ll meet Charlie Sparrow – a young bird who lives with his family in Tree City. Since none of the birds in Tree Town fly, they build staircases to get around. Charlie comes from a long line of staircase repairmen.
When the story opens, Charlie’s father is bursting with excitement as he takes Charlie on his first repair job. But, his excitement is short-lived when Charlie plummets 50 feet from the tree! Since neither Charlie nor his parents can fly, Charlie’s parents now fear for Charlie’s safety, and do all they can to protect him from further accidents – as any good parents would.
For Charlie, however, the fall awakens a “stirring” in him – particularly when he notices that he can slow down his fall by spreading his “arms”. He realizes there is something different about him – and he is intent on discovering what it is!
Charlie’s desire to follow his dreams – even in the face of adversity – and to be accepted for who he is – will inspire young and old alike. Although the author calls this “an illustrated book for kids 6 to 9”, I believe it will delight audiences from 6 to 90!
