Land of Birds 

 

The flutter of wings whispers in the otherwise noiseless skies above the magnificent bird palace. Its residents flying in and out, going about their daily business. The law of the land works as it always has, at the commands of chirping and bird song. In the palace sit two queens who are also the country’s decision makers, a cat owl and a sparrow, both extremely old and wise.

 

In the land of birds you are either born with wings or, quite simply, as a bird. Inhabitants reside in tower rooms or high up in the tree tops. Flying is the only way to get around. Individual Minimighettos born without wings are instead rewarded with enchanted gifts and inherit an honourable task in the bird palace.

MR ELLIOTT

 

… Elliot sits, frozen in time, gazing out at the dazzling horizon. With the golden mane blowing gently in the wind, a tear slowly finds its way down his glowing cheek. Yet again, he has bid farewell to a friend and his mission is complete. With honour. With his unwavering presence and the courage to stare down fear, he is an inspiration to children who have seen their own sense of courage and adventure disappear.

 

 

…Elliott sitter länge och tittar ut mot den svindlande horisonten. Den gula manen blåser i vinden och i ögat faller långsamt en tår. Ännu en gång har han sagt farväl till en vän och hans uppdrag är avslutat. Med bravur. Genom sin ständiga närvaro och sin förmåga att utmana rädslan tar han hand om barn vars mod och äventyrslust försvunnit.
