On the way to school, Sara comes across a funny little house with a red roof. It is an aviary, full of colourful parakeets. She thinks about her grandfather, who loved watching birds fly free in his garden every day. Sara finds herself dreaming of an aviary with no fences and no roof…
A story as free as a bird!
