Gracie and Daniel know they are not to go near the Birdman. But is the Birdman really the dangerous figure others say?

A little story about perceptions and war and curses and prejudice that will get even young children thinking about important ideas.

What a gem. I was researching the isles and found a book set there, figured I would give it a shot. Turned out to be a fine tale of mystery then trust then salvation, all with a unique charm. Top notch writing.
