Manou the Swift

Manou grows up believing he is a seagull like his parents. He strives to swim, fish and fly like them but doesn’t seem to be very gifted. At the summer race he discovers why: to his great shock he finds out he was adopted as an offspring of the much-hated swifts. He sets out on a journey of self-discovery, along the way meeting birds of his own species, and finding out who he really is.
When trouble descends on the bird colonies, Manou is committed to save both his families, and must be courageous like a seagull and inventive like a swift.
