When I Can Fly
Little Boobook is obsessed with the idea of going to the city. He promises himself that as soon as he learns to fly, he’ll set off on his adventure. The city, however, is not what he imagined at all, and he finds himself missing his mum and ready for a new adventure back at home. This is a delightful picture book about taking a chance, working hard to achieve your dreams and the comfort of a loving family.
