Talon, Come Fly with Me

Nine year old Matica lives in a remote village on a dry plateau in the Andes of Peru with her Australian missionary and schoolteacher parents. Matica has a growth handicap and is trapped in the body of a two year old, causing her to be rejected by the local people, who do not allow her to play with their children. With patience and a sense of adventure, Matica befriends a pair of condors. A strong bond and love develops between them. She rescues the egg the condors, Tamo and Tima, are trying to protect from poachers and nurtures it to hatching. The egg hatches on her 10th birthday. She names the new fledging Talon. This is the beginning of many incredible adventures with Talon and Matica. It is a story of hope, determination and love.

About the Author

Gigi was born on 19 May 1944 in Potsdam, a suburb of Berlin in Germany.Her family escaped to the West just before the infamous wall went up, settling in Munich where Gigi studied architectural drafting and met Albert, marrying him December 1967. Her uncle was a writer, and encouraged her to write. Although she developed the love of words, she didn't start writing until later in life when her adopted twin girls were growing up and she was cleared of cancer and determined to get on with her life.Gigi lived in New Zealand for eighteen years then moved to Australia in 1992. Since then, her writing has flourished. Improving her English as she went, she entered many writing competitions, receiving back positive results.From her life experiences, the idea for TALON was created.
