Maud is a dragon with beautiful multi-coloured wings who doesn't believe she can fly. She watches her siblings every night and wishes she could join them in the sky, but never tries. Her siblings are not very nice to her about it either. When faced with a situation where she absolutely NEEDS to fly, her best friend Mouse lets her know he believes in her.
*A beautiful picture book at individuality and friendship
