Reviews

Text and illustrations work together to create a meaningful story that's playful and fun...Thoughtful compositions keep eyes moving across spreads, offering readers the sensation of traveling. This convivial and gentle story about differences is a needed addition to collections about challenging the norm or upending physical expectations.
--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Gary proves a savvy and resourceful bird, and it's refreshing to see his character embrace adventure rather than simply wish for the ability to fly.
--Booklist

The artwork is endearing...Parents, teachers, and librarians will love the message that it's OK to be different. A solid choice for a storytime or one-on-one sharing.
--School Library Journal

This story passes with flying colors--a charmer through and through.
