Wings of Glory cover

Can one tiny bird help to win a world war? Wings of Glory is a funny action-adventure story with a feathery twist, from the bestselling children's author of Toto the Ninja Cat, Dermot O'Leary, with glorious illustrations throughout by Claire Powell.

Our mission is simple: to thwart enemy planes by any means, be they beak, claw, or poo . . . in poo we trust!

It's 1940, and world is at war. The Royal Bird Force has been drafted in to help save the day, but there's a spy in their ranks who is determined to take them down.

Can the new recruit, Linus, uncover the traitor, find his missing sister and help to win the war?

Featuring courageous loop-the-loops, top secret plans and more than a smattering of bird poo, this wartime tail will make you laugh and cry - and maybe teach you a thing or two as well.
