A young dragonling named Little Wing is determined to fly in this sweetly fantastic reassurance tale, telling himself and his mother that a dragon never gives up. After many unsuccessful attempts, he finally gets airborne, only to find himself carried far from home by the wind. How will he ever find his way back...?

This picture-book debut from Calista Brill offers an engaging re-imagining of the classic reassurance tale, in which a youngster ventures out into the world, seemingly on his own, only to find that his mother or father is there to help when trouble arises. The artwork, done in pencil, watercolor and Photoshop, is colorful and appealing, adding to the fun. Recommended to anyone looking for lighthearted dragon stories for younger children, or for newer reassurance tales. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0062360337, Hardcover)

No matter how hard Little Wing tries to fly, he always flops . . . until one day when his fluttering takes him above the clouds and far away—maybe too far away! Lost in the sky, Little Wing has to find his way home. But thanks to a special someone, he learns the importance of dragon rules. And with a helping wing to guide him, Little Wing can be flip, flop, fearless!

With Calista Brill’s sincere story and Jennifer A. Bell’s vibrant illustrations, Little Wing Learns to Fly is utterly convincing as a sweet coming-of-age tale. Fans of Finding Nemo and Giraffes Can’t Dance will love rooting for Little Wing as the little dragon that could.

Children and adults alike will get carried away on Little Wing’s journey home!
