some dogs FLY ... ( )
  melodyreads | Oct 27, 2014 |
Sid is walking to school and learns he can fly. When he gets to school he tells everyone he knows how to fly but everyone think he is lying. He gets very sad and his dad tells him a secret. Which is that he can also fly. Sid says I guess some dogs can fly and others can't. I like this story because it is a story of how if you believe in yourself you can really do something. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 076362201X, Hardcover)

In the inimitable world of Jez Alborough, some dogs do fly - and little pups everywhere are encouraged to dream big.

Do dogs fly?
Is it true?

One day, when Sid is walking to school, he suddenly gets a happy feeling. In fact, he feels so happy that his paws lift off the ground, and he floats right up to the sky! He can’t wait to tell his friends at school, but of course they don’t believe him. "Don’t be daft," scoffs Ben. "You’re a dog, and dogs don’t fly." Even Sid’s teacher shakes her head at him. Now Sid is one unhappy little pup. Can anything ever get him flying high again?
