Everyone one has something they try to hide.

For Katerina it's her stutter. Especially when she's around Paul, the good–looking son of her family's caretaker. She can never tell if he is making fun of her or just being friendly. Then she discovers a new species of bird, the silent spillbill. When spillbills are blamed for causing two airplane crashes, Katerina must stand up to her fears...with the help of an unexpected ally.

A finely drawn, romantic story about a girl's struggle to accept her limitations and come into her own, from one of the most respected children's authors writing today.

Ages 8–12

Об авторе (2003)

Born in Littleton, New Hampshire, Tor Seidler grew up in Vermont and later, Seattle, Washington, in both of which places his parents were involved in the theater. Encouraged by his family's love of the arts, Mr. Seidler studied English literature at Stanford University, and at the age of twenty-seven his first book, The Dulcimer Boy, was published, launching his celebrated career as a writer.

Over the past twenty years, Mr. Seidler has become one of the most important voices in children's fiction with such classics as, A Rat's Tale, The Wainscott Weasel, an ALA Notable Book, Terpin, and Mean Margaret, which was selected as a finalist for the National Book Award in 1997. He currently lives in New York City.
