11—The Book of Flying by Keith Miller

Pico is a librarian and poet. He has read every book in the library, but no one else, ever, has checked out a book.

There are two races in Pico's world, those with wings, who can fly and those without wings. Pico has fallen in love with a winged girl but her family has forbidden their love because Pico cannot fly.

This story is about Pico's quest to find  "The Book of Flying" which exists in Morning Town, on the other side of Pico's world. If he can find the book he will learn to fly.

This exquisitely written fable is the tale of Pico's adventures and the people he encounters in his search for wings.

An extraordinary work of art!
