A timeless tale of hope and joy.
For Goldie, a fledgling puffin left to fend for himself, nature is a strange and wonderful thing, beguiling in its fathomless mystery ... but fraught with danger. His mother had been killed by the stabbing beaks of maurading gulls and his father cast out from the flock. Goldie is alone, but he is strong.
When the call comes to rejoin his flock, Goldie journeys to the clifftop nesting site only to discover that a terrible slaughter has taken place: a colony of hungry rats have decimated his species.
So begins Goldie's fierce and heroic struggle to save his remaining brothers and sisters from the ruthless enemy that threatens their total destruction and to lead his flock to the peace and quiet dignity that is their natural state in the animal kingdom.
Beautiful, tender and inspiring, 'Fledger' is a stirring adventure of courage and love that will capture the hearts and imagination of animal lovers everywhere.
