Meet Petronia, a typical grade-school daydreamer learning to appreciate what’s around her. She is a dreamer, and she loves to make wishes and blow on Dandelion Wishettes. She also loves to sing, play her recorder, and hang out with her best friend, Sunny. Petronia is a Sparrow, but she wants to be an Eagle. This is a struggle for her, but with the help of her friends and family, she can accomplish anything she puts her mind to. Readers will want to join along and sing and dance with the characters. Whether it’s Ms. Angela’s magical storytelling, Zany Uncle Miles’ unorthodox twitch dancing, or Grandma Sonata’s acronymic lessons about Forgetting Everything’s All Right. The antagonists of the story, Lars, Bellzie, Hashtag, and Knocker will put many obstacles in Petronia’s way, but they will be no match for Petronia and her fellow students at the Learning Tree Academy. Music and storytelling are two of the most powerful methods of communication.
