Short review: A beautiful picture story, this book has no words at all so it's up to the reader to decide what is happening. It's a lovely book with no bad messages, although the flying part is short and makes the book not very relevant to this theme.

Writing: No writing! The pictures are lovely though, great for children (and adults) to sit and stare at, finding all the little details and how they follow the main character from page to page.

From a winged person's perspective...: The birds in this book are the only winged people... the boy does fly for a short time, but, he is riding on a leaf-bird, more than flying. The page where the leaves turn into swans is very interesting to look at, and there are some beautiful drawings of swans on the next page (they're trumpeter swans if you're curious ^^), but, this book is not really about flying.

Trigger warnings: None.

More thoughts...: There isn't a rating for this book, because it isn't in the theme. Sometimes I review books like this: they don't meet the theme even though I had some information that says they do (usually, these are books that were tagged with "flight" or "wings" in a library system or on Librarything), so, I review them anyway just to let people know. It's a very nice book though, nothing wrong with it (and very beautiful swan pictures if you like that ^^) Good for any age, from tiny children to adults, because it's only pictures.

Sometimes "a lovely book with no bad messages" is the best thing ever!
