ABOUT THE BOOK
From the award-winning team behind Ida, Always and This Way, Charlie comes an uplifting story of animal friendship, inspired by a real-life pair of storks whose bond overcame great distance.
Best friends Malena and Klepetan always adventure together! The two excitedly prepare to fly thousands of miles for the flock’s annual migration to a warm winter. But when Malena is injured, she stays in Croatia while Klepetan goes to South Africa—and the pair must navigate the turbulent winds of separation for the first time.
Being apart is hard. Malena and Klepetan miss each other achingly, and they have big feelings about adventuring on their own. But even over the vast distance, the two brave explorers discover ways to enjoy their separate seasons while keeping their hearts connected—and their hopes aloft that spring will bring them back together.
ABOUT Caron Levis
As a kid, I had this “cozy corner” where I charged 25 cents for “invited guests” (aka my sister) to come hang out. I served lemonade that I’d stolen from the fridge and offered activities such as reading, writing, make-believing, and blowing bubbles since that’s what I liked to do. Still do. I got hooked on books at age two when mom kept reading Good Night Moon and The Very Hungry Caterpillar in her terrific Brooklyn accent. I fell in love with theatre when dad took me to see the Fantasticks and one of the actors ‘fell’ right into my lap. I realized teachers were super cool by hanging out with my grandma, a life-long kindergarten teacher.
