How to Heal a Broken Wing

By Bob Graham
Illustrated by Bob Graham

In a spare urban fable, Bob Graham brings us one small boy, one loving family, and one miraculous story of hope and healing.

In the busy city, no one sees the bird lying on the pavement with a broken wing. No one, except a young boy named Will. With the help of his parents, Will takes the bird home to care for it. With rest, time, and a little hope, perhaps the bird will fly again. A paperback edition of a magical story, endorsed by Amnesty International UK.
