This is a feel good story for all children as it illustrates that anything is possible when you believe in yourself and put in the hard work.
Max is a 5-year old bird starting primary school in the town of Greenwood. In class Miss Rosie teaches the children how to fly.
Unfortunately Max can't seem to get it right as he keeps falling over and this makes him sad. Max tries to find a quick fix after visiting a doctor's potion and fails miserably. However, on the advice of his mother he begins to think he can and continues to practice and as a result he can now fly!
Mafalda Di Donato attended primary school where her creativity for writing short stories began and even won an award at ten years old for the story `the bird that could not fly'. Now as a 33-year old she was inspired to recreate this story for her own nephews and bring the book to life for their enjoyment.
