From the Publisher:

³The first time Sally flew was before she could even crawl. As her parents slept, she floated above them, too young to speak, too young to think in words.² Sally has been flying since she was a baby, and soaring across continents and oceans, she travels the world. Like her grandmother before her, Sally collects treasures from far-flung corners of the earth ‹ a seashell from Patagonia, precious stones from the desert, an orchid from the African jungle ‹ and learns to see the world not just with her eyes, but also with her heart.

From the Inside Flap:

ination, growing up and a very special relationship between a young girl and her grandmother are at the heart of this beautifully illustrated book from a master storyteller.

The first time Sally flew was before she could even crawl. As her parents slept, she floated above them, too young to speak, too young to think in words.’

Sally is just a baby when she first begins to soar above her house and over the garden. Soon she sees her brother and other children floating over the rooftops. But her mother is skeptical. “You and your ridiculous stories.

It's time you came down to earth.” Only her grandmother believes her and every night, Sally returns with a special present for the old lady – a butterfly, an opal, an orchid. She recalls her own travels as a little girl and explains that everyone has the power to fly, “only they've forgotten how. It's called growing up.”

One day, Sally and her grandmoth
