Publisher's Summary

In one vast and sparkling city, everyone can fly. Almost everyone.
A few, nicknamed leadfeet, are sentenced by a trick of nature or fate to forever spend their lives closer to the ground. But one night, a girl named Gurl - a leadfoot, an orphan, a nobody - discovers that she can do something much better than fly.
She can become invisible.
This amazing power will help her uncover the secret mysteries of the city. But even with her newfound talent, Gurl can't seem to hide from a giant rat man with a taste for cats, a manipulative matron with a penchant for plastic surgery, and a belligerent boy named Bug.
Gurl gradually learns to control her power and teams up with Bug to figure out who and what she is. Their quest will take them on a wild ride through this magical city, where they'll confront chatty birds and mind-bending monkeys, an eccentric genius with a head full of grass and a pocket full of kittens, and the handsome but lethal Sweetcheeks Grabowski - the gangster who holds the key to Gurl's past . . . and the world's future.

Fun Listen

What made the experience of listening to The Wall and the Wing the most enjoyable?

The narrator makes each character unique. It really adds to the telling of the tale.

Any additional comments?

This is my third time listening to these books with my children. I am enjoying it as much as they are. I find myself listening to it even when they aren't in the car.

My children are 9, 11, and 13 and it's hard to find a book that appeals to all of them. They all LOVE these books and are asking for more audiobooks by Laura Ruby.

My kids 9 - 13 yo loved this book. They had listened to it at the library, but enjoyed it so much that they wanted to own it. They have already listened to it 3 times.
