Baluka & Friends is the first in a series of children's books about a character who, along with his friends, deals with life's lessons and challenges. It is the story of a whimsical yet awkward character who spends all of his days and nights trying to fly. Only after tasking to exhaustion does his mind slow down enough to allow him to listen to others. This single moment takes him outside himself and allows him to realize that thinking of others can open up his world and set him free. With full-color illustrations on every page.
