  • Pico is an orphaned librarian who has been sustained all of his young life by his love of stories alone. But when love does come to him at last, it is forbidden. For the girl of his dreams is of the winged people in the City by the Sea. And Pico is wingless. So when he discovers an ancient letter in his library telling of the mythical Morning Town where the flightless may gain their wings, he sets off on a quest, carrying his four favourite books in a knapsack. It’s a magical journey in which he meets a robber queen, a lonely minotaur, a dream seller, a despairing cannibal, and an immortal beauty. Each of them has a story, and a lesson for Pico. And, in the end, he has learned to kill, to love, to persevere, and, of course, to fly.
