Not to judge someone by their appearance is an important life lesson and a difficult one at that. For if you do you may miss out on a special individual. Marta the Pegasus is confronted by the narrow thinking Aljor the bird who believes that Marta's enormous wings make her a freak. Contrary to Aljor's belief system, Stajon the monkey comes to Marta's defense. "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all. Keep your beak shut. Stajon stuck his tongue out at Aljor." What ensues between Marta and Stajon is a genuine friendship of accepting others for who they are and not by their looks. Their friendship is put to the test as a disaster occurs in the woods and the time for self discovery and courage is thrust upon Marta. Will she overcome the negativity towards her and save the day? Find out in Marta's Gargantuan Wings. J. Aday Kennedy's delightful story of finding one's place in society is a heartwarming story of acceptance. A must have children's book for classrooms, libraries, and homes to invoke non-judgment and anti-bullying conversations with our young muses. Eugene Ruble's illustrations makes Marta's the Pegasus' story come to life with enchantment.
