'A boy wakes to finds he has grown. He recognises the stranger in the mirror, but his parents, his town do not. Outside his childhood bedroom he finds a bird that cannot fly and together the strangers embark on adventures. This is the story about their journey to the big city, what they find there, what they join in and what they make themselves. A story about flying from nests, birdsong, the nature of man and wild things and growing up.' Source: http://www.slingsby.net.au/ (Sighted 17/08/2012).
