Vernan, the Vegan Vulture
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
He’s short. He’s awkward. He’s a picky eater. He’s Vernan, and he’s a Vulture. From the moment he pecked his way out of his egg, Vernan has had a peculiar problem: he cannot stomach the awful aliment he is expected to feast on as a Vulture. It causes him problems from day one and steadily escalates as he learns to navigate the Vulture Community, who pushes him to the ledge as an “outcast among outcasts.” He is mocked, threatened, bullied, and despised, all before he even sets a claw in the Great Hall of the Owls to attend annual Flight School. Flight School was created by the Owls so all the new fledglings from their Colorado mountainside would come together and learn the mechanics of flight and the science of society.
Follow Vernan as he begins his incredible journey from just a little fledgling to an adult Vulture, who refuses to be trapped by social stigmas and stereotypes. Volume 1 is just the beginning, but before his tale is through, Vernan will show the world how to eat!
Fun, vibrant summer read!
Stumbled upon this book by accident. Very interesting idea and main character. I can't wait to see where the author takes this story line.
