SKY CLOUD CITY (The Adventures of Hope & Trusty, Book 1) (2021 updated edition)
2021 Moonbeam Children's Book Awards, Bronze Medal.
When two young friends, Hope and Trusty, purchase a pair of talking birds, they have no idea what adventure lies ahead!
In this fun retelling of an ancient Greek play, we accompany Hope and Trusty to the Land of the Birds, where democratic procedures are maintained and where all birds are equal. Who is King Hoopoe? Why did he summon a bird assembly? Hope and Trusty are trespassers and the birds are angry . . . Can the two friends win over the assembly? How do the Olympian gods get involved in all of this?
Sky Cloud City is a story of friendship and brotherhood, equality and acceptance, collaboration and determination. It highlights working together to achieve impossible goals. Based on the play Ornithes (The Birds, 414 BC) by Aristophanes.
The book is organized in chapters with stunning colored illustrations to encourage reading by reluctant young readers. It is an absolute must-have for those kids who love Greek mythology and are transitioning from picture books to chapter books!
