    This is the story about a missionary family from Australia teaching the Indians in the mountains of Peru and in particular their daughter Matica Matica is 9 and was born with a growth disorder which makes her much smaller than she should be for her age She uestions her purpose here being so much smaller than everyone and the Indians make her existence no easier by teasing her because of it and having no friends She then befriends two condors Tamo and Tia and manages to save their lone egg from poachers Matica incubates the egg and hatches it raising the chick which she names Talon with the help of its parents The Indians come to be in awe of her for this In the end her small stature enables her to do what no one else would be able to doI enjoyed this book and think that it would be especially encouraging for children living with a disability uestioning their place in the world I would like to read the rest of the series and see where further adventures take MaticaI received this book in exchange for an honest review from the author thank you

    Well where to start I had picked this book up and put it down again many times unable to finish it mainly because I kept getting interrupted or to my shame I found I had other things to do I had promised the author a review but wanted to do it justice as this book demands it So I picked it up again having read through uickly once and this time took my time absorbing each chapter of this remarkable story and allowing it to soak into my soul And what a journey this wasThis is in many ways a story about a young girl too small for her age and too different to be like everyone else But it is also a story about courage and inner strength and about one girl’s love for life and the animals around herHigh up in the Peruvian mountains and hills on a vast plateau Matica forms a bond with two Condors Tamo and Tima She observes them from a distance at first as she and her brother Aikon search for the carcasses of small dead animals to feed these majestic birds with But it is in a special place Matica calls Ramah that she gets close enough to the birds to finally be able to make contact She eventually gains their trust and learns that she has the ability to understand their body language; even what they are thinkingTo her family Matica is a girl desperate for friendship and to the villagers she is an oddity someone to be feared and even shunned But to these two birds Matica is their only close contact with humans that is except for the poachers who are desperate to steal the eggs from the endangered Condors When the poachers almost succeed Matica with her father Crayn’s help finds herself in a desperate race against time to protect the birds and their unborn young So begins a tremendous story of courage love family and a beautiful friendship culminating in some uite extraordinary scenes in the bookThere are moments in this book where I thought it a myth brought to life by beautifully crafted narrative full of believable dialogue But there are other moments I thought this story was an environmental book as well a cautionary tale perhaps aimed at reminding us all of the fragility of our eco systems and the horrible way some people treat our animals on this planet In this respect Matica is not only a courageous hero but an environmental warrior who is willing to risk it all to protect the creatures she has come to love even referring to as familyThe book culminates in some extraordinary scenes one of which near the end of the book I guarantee will leave the reader breathless This is by no means just a story for children or young adults but a story for adults who also love adventure just as much With its short punchy chapters and its uniue dialogue driven narrative style this book is easy to read and understand It is such a uniue story I cannot even begin to compare it to anything else It is not just a adventure nor is it merely a story that everyone will love It is than that It is an important book that teaches us respect for our wildlife and especially those endangered by our own stupidityThis is also a coming of age and has some real life lessons to teach us about our own limitations and that we should never let those limitations dictate our path through life rather embrace them and put those apparently negative aspects to positive useMatica’s story invites the reader to see the world as she does through the eyes of a little girl with a big heart and great challenges she must overcome But when she does overcome she takes everyone her family her village and the reader along for this joyous and addictive rideI bought a copy of this book on my Kindle AppPaul G Day is author of The Black Fairy The Dragonfly Children of Mars Star Child The Cosmic Birth and Kipp The KidPlease visit his home page at

    Flight of Love'Talon Come Fly with Me' by writer Gigi Sedlmayer is simply an awesome tale about a girl Matica who lives in Peru with her missionary parents Mira mother and Crayn father and loving four year old brother Aikon amongst the Indian tribeLife is tough for Matica since she suffers from a medical problem that prevents her body from growing to its normal size this results in non acceptance from Indians of Matica into their tribe They consider Matica to be under influence of some evil spirit and do not allow their children to be friends with MaticaMaticas loneliness makes her turn to nature for help and she makes friends with two majestic birds 'Condors' Tima and Tamo She strives to save these huge endangered species and their eggs from poachersAuthor Gigi Sedlmayer has done a wonderful job by catching each and every detail of nature landscape and scenic beauty in every chapter of her book This novel is full of information about Condors their size habitat and eating habit and much for those who don't know anything or very little about such majestic endangered species of vultureI could feel each and every emotion faced by writers characters their conversation and behaviour was so natural that the novel kept me engaged for hours together at a stretch I am sure this book will be inspirational for all youngsters who will get a lot to learn from Matica her challenges and her strong character and also this novel will be very informative for adults who will get abundance of knowledge about CondorsI highly recommend this wonderful book to all age groups as it is a perfect balance of emotions nature knowledge and relationships A must read

  8. Uvi Poznansky Uvi Poznansky says:

    This story opens directly into a dialog between Matica and her brother just as if you happened to pass by them and catch the sound of their voice and a glimpse of her crawling on the ground to search for a worm to feed Tamo Despite her predicament—a nine year old girl trapped in the body of a two year old toddler—the way she looks is endearing “Her long wavy sandy blond hair fell over her face so she brushed it behind her ears” and to anyone who experienced isolation the way she feels is moving I wish I could have a friend like Emilio Oh well at least I have Tamo but he’s a bird not a human”In this children’s book the author Gigi Sedimayer gives us language that is rich and the sound of it is fascinating “The hens fluffed ruffled and puffed up their feathers then ran away loudly clucking and flapping their wings” Her deep knowledge about the life of condors enriches the story and is imparted with a light touch “Two months later Talon was now ten months old and fully grown though he still had his brownish geey coat of feathers” The connection between the growing condor Talon and little Matica is an intimate one “Matical lay on him wondering what to do next Should I slide down? Is Talon OK now? Is he calm?”Talon Come Fly With Me is about taking flight overcoming your predicament and forming bonds that free you—“To grow—or not to grow as it is with me”Five stars

    The magical world of MaticaThis is an inspirational story beautifully told of hope compassion and acceptance Matica’s relationships with her family and alienation by the local villagers are portrayed with a deep understanding of the human condition The description of wildlife scenery and Peruvian culture are excellent and show the author’s empathy with both the country and peopleOn top of being an outsider in a closed community Matica suffers from a growth deficiency that causes the other kids to single her out for ridicule The ostracized Matica befriends a male condor Tamo and slowly earns his trust Impoverished poachers are after the highly prized condor eggs and Matica makes it her duty to protect them Her bond with the condors finally earns the villagers respect and acceptance when Matica defends them from the poachers Matica lovingly looks after the condor egg and then nurtures the hatchling naming it Talon I don’t want to spoil the story for younger readers but that’s when the real magic happens and Matica realizes that she is specialPassed TALON COME FLY WITH ME on to my 12yr old daughter to read; I know she will love the story and the important message it delivers of wildlife conservation If only people were as caring and compassionate as the wonderful Matica
