9th book in Max and Annie series.
After seven unhappy years in a puppy mill, Penny the Cavalier King Charles spaniel, is finally rescued and placed in a loving home. During her captivity, she longed to be free like the birds she watched from the window of the barn where she was held. Now, with the help of an orphaned baby bird, Penny attempts to learn the secret of flight. Penny's story will make you laugh when she tries, despite the odds, to fly! However instead of learning to fly, Penny and her big brother, Tak, see that sometimes it is better to help a friend achieve something important than to try to do the impossible yourself.
