Swift feels safe tucked up in his nest. But when all the other birds fly to a new home on the other side of the world, Swift doesn’t want to be left behind. It’s a treacherous journey across land and sea and there’s a storm coming … Will Swift find the courage to spread his wings?
A moving story about leaving home in pursuit of safety, friendship and adventure, inspired by the 22-000 mile journey swifts make every year. Beautifully brought to life by debut author-illustrator and winner of the Carmelite Prize 2021, Lorna Hill.
