My review of
Talon, Come Fly With Me
by Gigi Sedlmayer
This is one of the most interesting books I've read in a long
time, of any variety. (I review a lot of books, so I see more than most
people.) The lead character is young Matica is from Australia but now lives in Pucara, located on a high and open, sandy, vast plateau of the Andes about a thousand meters up in Peru, South America. Matica finds and befriends a
rare condor, and eventually the condor's family. The condor family becomes part
of Matica's family, in a way after Matica and her father do their best to
protect them from poachers. Everyone in the family helps hatch their egg …
that's just the beginning of the story.
There is a lot in this book, in many ways, it's a unique story a
great read, but there must be more than a hundred lessons it can teach
children, without them ever knowing they're learning anything. There are
lessons about ecology, family, native ways, just to name a few. This story
somewhat leaves me at a loss for what to say about it. All the superfluous
words in my arsenal fail to do it justice. Talon is so good on so many levels,
that adults will enjoy it, so will children, whether the children can read it
themselves of have it read to them. There is drama, humor, and a flight of fancy
