Can one tiny bird help to win a world war? Wings of Glory is a funny action-adventure story with a feathery twist, from the bestselling children’s author of Toto the Ninja Cat, Dermot O’Leary, with glorious illustrations throughout by Claire Powell.

It’s 1940, and the world is at war. Linus, a swift, has always dreamed of flying with the Royal Bird Force and making a name for himself as a squadron leader. So when he and his sister, Ava, have the opportunity to volunteer, he jumps at the chance. But it’s a dangerous journey, and Ava goes missing before they manage to reach the airfield for training. Now, Linus has two missions: help the war effort and find his sister. Linus will face bomber planes, arrogant falcons, and a spy who’s determined to take him down… He is brave and fast and kind – but can Linus prove that helping win the war is more about the size of your heart than the size of your wings?

Featuring courageous loop-the-loops, top secret plans and more than a smattering of bird poo, this wartime tail will make you laugh and cry – and maybe teach you a thing or two as well.

Great for Ages 8-11.
