about this item

Bird Boy follows the story of Bali, a 10 year-old boy, desperate to prove his worth to his Northern tribe, despite his small stature. Banned from the ceremony that would make him an adult in the eyes of his people, he takes matters into his own hands. To prove that he is capable of taking care of himself, he sets out into the forbidden forest and stumbles upon a legendary weapon. Bali fights his way across a dangerous land of gods, men, and beasts to keep the sword of Mali Mani, the savior of the sun, from the hands of the terrifying Rooks."Stunningly beautiful, strange (in the best way possible) and refreshingly original. Oh, and that little guy is just adorable." -Mike Mignola"Anne Szabla's Bird Boy manages to catch that golden ring of design: something familiar yet somehow brand new. In these days of digital lookalikes, it's always a treat to find someone with a own voice of their own, and the craft and the courage to use it well!" -Iain McCaig"Bird Boy immediately stands out from the myriad of fantasy web comic options through gorgeous art and refreshing subject material inspired by cultures from all over the world."-Multiverse Daily

This is not a children's book. It could be; but is really an all-age book. I've been following this story for awhile now. Be warned that there there will be second book with at least three telling the story. The story: Bali is a very young boy who is trying to find his place in his tribe.
