When Callum spots crazy Iona on his family’s property, she’s catching a fish with her bare hands. She won’t share the fish, but does share something else: a secret. A rare endangered Osprey, and it’s clear that if anyone finds out about the bird, it is likely doomed. So Iona and Callum vow to keep track of the bird and check her migratory progress using the code tagged on her ankle, no matter what. But when one of them can no longer keep the promise, it’s up to the other. No matter what.
Wild Wing's is one of my favorite book's.

Kid Tested, Librarian Approved...a blog of children's books' reviews.
What do you send your alien pen pal Clunk to make it clear you do not want an alien pen pal? You send him your big sister. That'll teach Clunk to have a pen pal from Earth-or so our intrepid narrator thinks. But then Clunk sends him a Zoid, an exasperating Zoid that follows him everywhere. After swapping dirty socks, three Forps, some old lasagna, a weird glob, and a string of Christmas lights, our hero seems to be having . . . could it be . . . fun? But then: Clunk stops sending stuff. Oh no! Earth to Clunk . . . ? Is he too busy being bossed around by our hero's big sister? Will her ever send another package again? Maybe-or maybe not. More hilarious surprises await! Deadpan comedy, vibrant artwork (a bit Calvin & Hobbes, a bit Eloise), a warm friendship theme, and an extraordinary surprise ending will have kids laughing all the way back to the first page of this sweet-in-spite-of-itself story.
