Fearless Flying Excerpt:

It was a breezy morning on Ahway Island. Geoffrey Robin was woken up by the warm sun’s rays. It had been two weeks since Geoffrey had hatched. Since hatching, Geoffrey had stayed in his nest high up in the trees with his mother, Gerry Robin, who kept Geoffrey warm while his feathers grew in. On this windy morning, Gerry was still curled up next to Geoffrey, making sure he stayed cozy and protected while he slept. Geoffrey could feel the warmth of his mom’s feathers next to him. Being wrapped in his mother’s wings made Geoffrey feel very safe.

Geoffrey decided to look at his own wings. They were already covered in soft grey feathers that hadn’t been there just days ago, and when he looked down at his chest, he even saw the beginnings of a few orange feathers!
