2021 Read for Empathy collection -

A beautiful, heartfelt story from the author of King of the Sky and The Promise. Javier has a secret. On one of his father's fishing-trips, he finds an albatross caught on the hooks: alive, if only barely.

Against his father's orders, Javier smuggles the bird to safety and begins nursing it back to health. Every day, the albatross accepts a little more food - but she shows no sign of wanting to use her wings. And if Javier's new friend refuses to fly, how will she ever find her way home? With words by award-winning author Nicola Davies and dramatic watercolours by Salvatore Rubbino, this is the story of a boy, a bird and the meaning of home.
