The finches exist as an undifferentiated flock, going through each day together, doing the same thing, at the same pace. And then...one night, one particular finch, Henry Finch, has a thought. And he hears it. And he knows himself to be Henry Finch. And therefore also capable of greatness... A highly original philosophical book for the very young, addressing individualism, bravery, finding your way and, even, existentialism. Age 6-11, Paperback 37pp
