Synopsis

In a beautiful, green valley somewhere in the North, there once was a bird who did not fly. This bird preferred to walk. All the other birds thought his behavior was very odd, so he led a fairly solitary existence.

That is, until he befriends an extremely affable worm who joins him on his journey south in search of warmer weather. A lot of people might think it strange for a nonflying bird and a sociable worm to be friends, but that’s exactly what happens in this unusual story about the power of friendship, the sway of charm, and the importance of having a good Plan B.
