Everyone one has something they try to hide.

For Katerina it's her stutter. Especially when she's around Paul, the good–looking son of her family's caretaker. She can never tell if he is making fun of her or just being friendly. Then she discovers a new species of bird, the silent spillbill.

Ages 8–12
