The book takes place during the holiday season in the big city, through the eyes of a middle child sparrow "named Petronia," where everyone in her world is a bird or an insect. All the characters have all the same emotions and desires as human beings. As Petronia faces challenges with the holidays right around the corner, she realizes how important it is for her to deal with everyday challenges, and to have a strong support system of friends and family. Whether it's performing a song around the holidays or any other obstacle, as long as you have family and friends, there is nothing you can't overcome or achieve. All it takes is to keep trying and a little "Practice"!
