"I love this story, which is beautifully illustrated by Jane Porter - she depicts all the birds for us so well, and they are utterly delightful."

Wings! PB

The sky is full of birds and ALL of them are SWOOPING AND SOARING… except Penguin.


“I wish I could fly!” says Penguin sadly.


Owl, Parrot and the other birds try their best to help, but NOTHING seems to get their friend off the ground! How can Penguin achieve his deepest desire, and fly?

IBBY Reviews Wings!

Wings is a very colourful book that is essentially about friendship, team work and building self-esteem. This delightful story of Penguin who yearns to fly is told with humorous text and lovely multi-coloured collages. It is amusing and lively while imparting the information so that it will appeal to adults and children alike.

Wings! reviewed in Angels and Urchins Christmas edition

"Beautiful collage illustrations in a warm-hearted story about a  penguin who can't fly. The other birds help him realise that he is destined for different things.  P78
