Just Not Quite Right tells the touching tale of Elmer, a young eagle who experiences much difficulty in learning to fly. Construed as the dual legends of "how eagles' beaks became curved" and "how snow came to the mountains," the book hails perseverance and community effort as the fires which ignite hope in all. A universal theme surfaces, for we are all Just Not Quite Right in some way. The book's message is one of celebrating those very differences which make us all unique. It is a tender and endearing tale with universal appeal.
