Instead of soaring high among the clouds with his fellow eagles, Regal sits on a stump; he gets dizzy when he spreads his wings. Along hops an inquisitive goldcrest who boldly proposes to help the grounded giant. Flight training beginshowever cautiouslywith Regal climbing the slope of a hill, higher and higher for two days until he reaches the summit. His last assignment is to climb into the uppermost branches of a lone pine that overlooks the forest far below. Eyes ablaze, Regal takes the plunge, flaps his wings and soars with the goldcrest riding on his back. Klinting's lighthearted story reaffirms the universal value of helping others and, in a unique fashion, shows readers that champions aren't bornthey're made. Ages 3-up. (June)
