Boys don't fly


Boys Don't Fly is a children's picture book about a young boy and his search for adventure. 

While exploring the jungle, our young hero encounters several animal friends who each have a unique ability. Unfortunately, he is unable to imitate them when they use wings to fly, swim fast with flippers, or carry heavy objects with a giant trunk. When the boy returns home, his Grandmother teaches him a valuable lesson about what makes him special.

Boys Don't Fly was created by Cassie and Ryan Ehrenberg and published in June 2017 by Inkton Press.
