Rising above our circumstance to reach our full potential despite what we see around us as the 'norm', this is Hook's predicament. An eaglet raised by a hen, they keep telling him he is not meant for earth because he can fly. But how is Hook to learn to fly when he keeps falling while trying?

A stunning book visually and inspirationally, asking us to look at where we might soar in our lives, where our children may have wings with which to fly.

Truly a masterpiece.

I'm so glad I picked this book up. I never had previously because of the cover... it's kind of boring and weird. The artwork inside is NOTHING like that cover. It's breathtakingly engaging.

The book is about a young eagle chick who is raised by chickens and a young boy. Very simple language, GORGEOUS pictures, beautiful and inspiring message.
