Set in the Elkhorn Slough State Marine Reserve in California and
aimed at readers in grades three through five, this coming-of-age story tackles issues such as
identity and coping with bullying. The friendship between Eddie, a Great Egret,
and Harry, a Great Blue Heron, fosters an atmosphere of trust that enables both birds
to wrestle with their insecurities and come to understand themselves better. The
work is beautifully illustrated by artist Diann Ditewig.
