Sorry this book is Out Of Print

Brief Description: Living in the west village, which had been put under a spell in the time of his ancestors, Jack was an ordinary nine-year-old boy who had an extraordinary dream – to fly. His fascination with watching birds rather than playing with the other children made him both a loner and a figure of fun.
However, despite the taunting and alienation, and the narrow vision of the adults around him, he was determined to fulfil his dream of flying freely like a bird, and the challenges that Jack faced in his search for adventure taught him more about the world and about himself that he could ever have imagined.
There are many lessons that we can learn from the ‘bird boy’ about the wonders that our imagination can create, discovering the adventurous child within, facing fear and rejection, believing in ourselves, and having the courage to pursue our dreams against all the odds.

Special Note: The eBook version of this book is no longer available.
