Tibby is a young bird with a crooked wing who will never be able to fly. Some of the other birds make fun of Tibby, but undaunted he travels cheerfully around the forest, making friends with Rupert Rabbit, Sarafina Squirrel, and others who make their home there. They teach him how to climb, slither, hop, and more—and Tibby tries it all! In the end, Tibby uses his newfound ability to save the day and become a hero.

This inspiring story will show children that physical disabilities don't have to slow anyone down, and that trying is what matters most.
