Book Review/Giveaway: Charlie Sparrow and the Secret of Flight. Ends April 19th.
Charlie Sparrow and the Secret of Flight by David Anderson
About the Book: Charlie Sparrow and the Secret of Flight is an illustrated chapter book for kids ages 6-9 about a young bird’s quest to discover who he truly is. Charlie doesn’t know he has wings. How could he? The adults of Tree City have taught him all wrong. They’ve never even heard of birds flying. They clip their feathers short to keep them out of the way and build big winding staircases up to their nests. Charlie is sure there’s a magical secret behind his feathers that his parents, his friends, his doctors, the geese police, the Safety Inspector and every other bird in Tree City is missing. Can he figure it out before Doctor Nightingale straps him in the plucking chair and plucks his beautiful feathers?
My Review: Charlie went with his dad to the top of the tree to help repair the long staircase that coiled around the tree. Mr Sparrow set Charlie down and started to hammer along the wood of the steps. When he looked up Charlie was no longer with him for he has climbed to the top of the stairs. Then there was a snap and Charlie came falling off the banister. Mr Sparrow leapt up the stairs to catch Charlie but it was too late as Charlie started to fall. You will think they will both fly to each other being a bird but neither sparrow knew how to fly. Then to Charlie surprise, he found he was floating and landed below the tree.
His parents became worried and called the doctor, who diagnoses him with having Leaping Syndrome and the only cure was to cut off his feathers. Will Charlie allow the doctor to remove his feathers?
An interesting chapter book for children ages 6 and up with 98 pages.
