Overview

Ages 9 - 12. Hoover, a crotchety old barn owl, makes a surprising discovery while searching for a much-needed meal. He finds Robbie, a young robin, alone in a nest. Robbie’s family has flown south for the winter, leaving him behind. Nosy Hoover must find out how this happened, and how Robbie has survived without his parents. Bit by bit, Hoover unravels Robbie’s secret.

A special friendship develops between Hoover and Robbie. Hoover comes to realize that Robbie will starve unless the young robin does the one thing he fears most. Hoover must convince Robbie to face that fear.

Flying Lessons is a story about finding freedom through facing your fears, and realizing that helping someone, even with the best of intentions, doesn’t always help them learn the lesson of life.
