Staff Reviews


Travel to a realm where all books are banned! Here we find the talented and clever 12-year-old Mosca Mye who possess one of the rarest and most dangerous gifts of all: she can read. Along with a smooth talking con-man and a goose with a biting problem, Mosca must make her way across the realm to discover whether her love of words is a blessing or a curse. Fly by Night is an enchanting adventure about fighting for the right to read, and believing in the power of words.
