Narrated by Scooter the Loquatian, "Wings to Fly" is about a loquacious owl that has long floppy ears, is red, yellow, orange, and pink, and lives in the Loquat tree. "My name is Scooter because that is how I get by. I scoot from limb to limb because I can't fly." The process of believing, trusting, imagining, and giving to oneself and others eventually enabled Scooter to fly. Imagined by Jennifer (Jen) Utsch, aka Jendala, Scooter was inspired by a dream in 2008, where dialogue with the Loquatian began. Illustrated by Tara Seren, each page reaches into Scooter's lucid, bright, and playful world. After years of meeting the characters, real and imagined, and learning their stories, Jendala's creations are ripe to share. The platform for sharing is the Land of Jendala, where children will learn the most important belief of all... to trust yourself. This is a land where everything is possible, the vision leads the way, and virtues are your strengths. By supporting "Wings to Fly," you will be helping build the Land of Jendala, a forming program giving children access to their self-worth.Any funds raised over the cost of the books will go to creating the 501c3 nonprofit and developing programs.
