A delightfully illustrated inspirational fable, reminiscent of Jonathan Livingston Seagull and Sara Midda. The Little Tern is a fable for adults, a beautifully painted journey with a number of messages. It is the enchanting story of the little tern who discovers one day that he has lost his ability to fly. Life becomes meaningless. Deserted by his airborne friends, he is left alone on the shore. But then, new friends arrive and every one of them brings with them a new aspect of life. Through this experience and the friendships that are formed from it, the little tern encounters things he had never noticed before. And soon, he realises, life is much richer than he had previously realised and that our real strength comes from our seeming weakness. The Little Tern is a stunningly illustrated modern parable on how to find hope in disappointing or frustrating circumstances. An imaginative journey painting the landscape of who we are, it is a journey of the heart to the soul.
