When Winker Leafkin finds a beautiful blue egg to enter in the elfin Easter contest, he doesn't realize what trouble it will be to raise a baby robin. As soon as the egg hatches, there are worms to dig and predators to escape, but the tiny elf finds the most difficult challenge isn’t even teaching the bird to fly. The hardest for Winker is his fear of saying goodbye. This springtime story of friendship and adventure is a great fantasy for younger readers. Includes 5 full-page color illustrations.
