Author(s): Colin Thompson
Sally is just a baby when she first begins to soar above her house and over the garden. Soon she sees her brother and other children floating over the rooftops. But her mother is sceptical. Only her grandmother believes her and every night Sally returns from another journey with a special present for the old lady. She recalls her own travels when she was a little girl and explains that everyone has the power to fly, "only they've forgotten how. It's called growing up." But Sally never forgets how to fly and when she has children of her own, she flies with them.
