A freshly retold animal fable about heroism, hope, and community, from award-winning creators Leah Henderson and Magaly Morales

Across oceans, lands, and skies
In whispers, shouts, and in many different languages
the story of the little hummingbird of the Great Forest can always be heard

The story of the little hummingbird has been told around the world in many forms and across many cultures, believed to have originated among the Indigenous Quecha people of modern-day Ecuador. In this spin on the globally popular legend, when a disastrous forest fire threatens the Great Forest, the hummingbird must inspire all the animals to work together to save their homes.

Lyrically told by Leah Henderson and vividly illustrated by Magaly Morales, this tale of bravery against seemingly insurmountable odds and a community working together to overcome adversity is a reminder that no challenge is too great, and that even the smallest of us can make a world of difference.

Includes an author’s note, as well as back matter on the origins of the folktale and facts about hummingbirds.
