This is the story of Flap, a young finch that practices flying with his two friends Neil and Zippy. Returning to the group after a bad accident, Flap discovers that he has a terror of jumping off of their normal practise rock. As staying grounded for the rest of his life is not an option, he finds a way to blast himself into the sky, and past the wall of fear he has been having.

Zippy's House

Zippy's House. This is my suggestion for where Zippy could live with his parents and 10 identical brothers and sisters. The house is patched up with different elements, that the family has come about, during the years, the romantic railing at the front, Zippy's mom found in the junk yard, and thought is was too sweet to waste. She is sort of atatched to it now, because it's someting that is her addition to the house, and sometimes she can feel a little lost and unappresiated by the rest of the family.
