The Elephant Bird

Munia was different from the other children. She could not run. It was her differences that first made her notice the Elephant Bird – he was just like her, she could not run, he could not fly. She knew another secret the elephant bird kept, and when the elephant bird is accused of swallowing the village horse, she is determined to help prove his innocence.
