The blue jays and cardinals of Stone-Run Forest have always lived harmoniously side by side. But the fate of the forest—and all its inhabitants—is in jeopardy when the sinister hawk, Turnatt, turns the two bird tribes against each other.
According to legend, only Swordbird, Son of the Great Spirit, has the power to conquer evil and restore peace to the land. But is he real or just a myth? Can Swordbird arrive in time to save the forest . . . or will it be too late?
13-year old author Nancy Yi Fan has woven a captivating tale about the birds of Stone-Run Forest and the heroism, courage and resourcefulness in their quest for peace.
Performed by Colleen Delany

After generations of peaceful coexistence, the blue jays and cardinals are at war. Before they annihilate each other, they discover that a power-hungry hawk has created disharmony to enslave the birds and gain control of the forest. Only Swordbird can restore peace to the forest. Nancy Yi Fan was in fifth grade when, inspired by a vivid dream and her conflicted feelings after 9/11, she wrote this fantasy. Colleen Delany narrates this tale of war and peace, suspicion and trust, cowardliness and bravery. Her narration is concise but lacks life. Battles sound matter-of-fact rather than exciting. Budding young authors may especially enjoy the interview in which Fan discusses her inspiration and plan for getting published.
