Our customer reviews

Not far outside of Stone-Run Forest an evil bird, Lord Turnatt, is gaining power. He\'s using slavebirds to build a fortress. And his thieving has caused the Cardinal and Blue Jay tribes to declare war on each other, even though they\'ve been friends for a very long time. Little do the Cardinals and Blue Jays know that a much worse enemy is preparing an attack. If the Cardinals and Blue Jays are going to survive, they\'ll need to work together. With help from unexpected friends, escaped prisoners, and the mythical Swordbird, they just might make it through, and defeat Lord Turnatt. It will take the talents and abilities of many to overpower evil. But if they can discover how to call Swordbird, they know they can survive. SWORDBIRD is an animal adventure that\'s not just good versus evil, it\'s about faith and friendship, too. This book is fun and easy for younger kids, especially since the author is (or was when she wrote it) a twelve-year-old girl!show more
