John Morano

“…that’s why John Morano’s books are important. He puts us in the minds of some lesser-known, perhaps unloved creatures. The octopus we all know, of course, but how many of us spare daily thoughts for a coelacanth or a petrel?”
Andrew Sharpless, President of Oceana

Glyde, Gonzo, and Azul have one thing in common: they’re all flying as flocks of one. Other than his father, Lupé, Glyde has never seen a pure Guadalupe petrel, so when he hears of a similar petrel in danger, he implores his father to join him in a daring rescue attempt. Along the way, Glyde is joined by Gonzo, an endangered ivory-billed woodpecker, Zomis, the last remaining passenger pigeon, and a barred owl who speaks only in Shakespearean English. Meanwhile, after losing his mate and being smuggled out of the shrinking Caatinga, Azul finds himself in the care of a celebrated conservationist. However, not everything is as it seems, and the Spix’s macaw must fight to return to the place he knows best. But with a disappearing habitat and without a mate, can his journey lead him home?

The John Morano Eco-Adventure Series is back with a fourth installment that asks the question: What does it mean to be home in a changing world? As the climate warms and habitats are lost, will the man-flock help the birds before it’s too late, or will these flocks of one become flocks of none?

    • Features a special introduction by Andrew Sharpless, President of Oceana
    • First Eco-Adventure available in hardcover!
    • Continues series started in A Wing and a Prayer, Makoona, and Out There, Somewhere
    • Environmental/conservationist themes with an uplifting, hopeful message

    FIRST TIME IN PRINT!

    Featuring a special introduction by Andrew Sharpless, President of Oceana.

    Glyde, Gonzo, and Azul have one thing in common: they’re all flying as flocks of one. Other than his father, Lupé, Glyde has never seen a pure Guadalupe petrel, so when he hears of a similar petrel in danger, he implores his father to join him in a daring rescue attempt. Along the way, Glyde is joined by Gonzo, an endangered ivory-billed woodpecker, Zomis, the last remaining passenger pigeon, and a barred owl who speaks only in Shakespearean English.

    Meanwhile, after losing his mate and being smuggled out of the shrinking Caatinga, Azul finds himself in the care of a celebrated conservationist. However, not everything is as it seems, and the Spix’s macaw must fight to return to the place he knows best. But with a disappearing habitat and without a mate, can his journey lead him home?

    The John Morano Eco-Adventure Series is back with a fourth installment that asks the question: What does it mean to be home in a changing world? As the climate warms and habitats are lost, will the man-flock help the birds before it’s too late, or will these flocks of one become flocks of none?

    Flocks of One continues the outstanding focus on environmental concerns, personal fulfillment, friendship, self-awareness, and the tenets of eco-literature that Morano created in the first three unforgettable novels in the series, A Wing and a Prayer, Makoona, and Out There, Somewhere.

    Like the other books in the series, Flocks of One is a children’s book for adults and a young adult novel with universal themes, a story that you can enjoy by yourself or share with the entire family.
