In this wonderful story of a zealous bird who learns to soar out from under the shadow of his best friend's wing, Bill Cosby delivers a powerful message about being oneself and the glorious freedom it can bring.
Slipper, Feathers, and Hog are three of the rarest birds known to humankind. This odd flock met on the Beach by the Rock where they performed dangerous flying feats -- first for one another, and then for the hundreds of onlookers who soon gathered to watch. But when the skills of the most eager-to-please bird are overshadowed by the sheer beauty of his best friend, an attempt to borrow back the limelight nearly ends in disaster.
Why do these birds stunt fly at all? What do they expect from the skies, each other, and the crowds below? And just what are the people on the beach looking for from them?
Thought-provoking and illuminating, this beautiful picture book ultimately celebrates all of us who strive to be our best selves.
