What's Swift Wings About

Publisher Summary

Although he was a great solo flyer, Jake could not fly with the other swifts. Every time he tried, he bumped into one bird, knocked another into a spin, and soon destroyed the perfect formation. “Oh, no!” Jake heard behind him. “Jake’s here! We’ll never get it right if he’s with us.” Jake felt his confidence slipping away.
