About the book: 

Taima serves as a watchful protector of his town, swooping down from his nest atop the Space Needle to save Seattle's creatures in need. In his heroic endeavors, he meets a football team from his town who call themselves "Seahawks" as well! After he watches them suffer a heart-breaking loss in their first Super Bowl, he realizes he must lead them in showing the world what it means to be a Seahawk!
Football fans young and old, and anyone with local pride, will enjoy this uplifting story.
