Frankie Learns to Fly
Johann Van der Walt
Frankie is a worm who wants to explore the world above ground. The other worms tell him that the world is a dangerous place, full of animals and creatures who want to harm him.
But his mother tells Frankie that he can do anything if he wants it enough, and so he learns to climb the Big Tunnel which eventually takes him up to the sunshine and a whole new world. By making friends with some of the creatures he meets, Frankie learns that they are not the enemies that he has been led to believe.
Frankie's one wish is to fly high in the sky like the birds, but will the fact that he has no wings stop him? Will he have enough determination to achieve his goal?
