Talon, on the wing - Book cover
Talon, on the Wing is the second book of the Talon series, and it is also the place where an incredible thing happens: the predicament of the main character—her fate to remain small in size—turns out to be her most valuable gift, as it allows her to soar on the wings of her beloved Talon, up and away into exciting adventures. What challenged Matica has dreamed ever since she first befriended the condors is actually happening. And now the adventures begin.

Talon, come fly with me - Book cover
Nine-year-old Matica lives in a remote village on a dry plateau in the Andes of Peru. She moved to Peru when she was five with Australian missionary and schoolteacher parents. Because Matica is trapped in the body of a two-year-old, her growth handicap has caused her to be rejected by the local people and they would not accept her into their community or allow her to play with the children.
