Book Review - Charlie Sparrow and the Secret of Flight

About the Book
Charlie Sparrow has no idea he can fly. It's no wonder-in Tree City, none of the birds know anything about flying at all. Not Charlie's parents, not his friends, not the doctors or police. But Charlie is sure there's a magical secret behind his feathers. He'll do anything to find out what it is, even break the laws of Tree City. Will he figure out the truth before Doctor Nightingale straps him in the plucking chair and pulls the lever, plucking his beautiful feathers? This entertaining and inspiring chapter book for kids ages 6-9 has over thirty illustrations.

About the Author
David Anderson is a kids' chapter book author who also doodles pictures. He enjoys reading and collecting vinyl records.

My Take on the Book
My daughter loved this book, and I loved that it was at the exact level that she is at currently at reading wise and she was actually reading this to me. She loved the plot of the story itself and as a parent I loved the overall message that the book shared with readers. The book, while short, keeps you in suspense as you wait to find out what will happen in the end and whether the law will change and whether the birds will learn to fly or not. I also have to comment on the fun drawing throughout the book as my daughter kept commenting and saying how cool they were. If you are looking for a humorous story with a message that will spark some family conversations, this will definitely do the trick.
