Ben and Feathers

In the magical forest of Songland, all of the animals live in love and understanding until a mean bear moves in and snatches the resident bluebird, upsetting the peaceful community. When Songland’s biggest animals fail to scare him away, two brave mice step up in an attempt to save the day. Do they have what it takes to protect Songland?


Written by a father for his children, Ben and Feathers is a heartfelt tale filled with anticipation, wonder and ultimately triumph, proving that sometimes, with a little creativity, our heroes can appear in the unlikeliest of sizes.

Christopher McGarry

Christopher McGarry imagined up Ben and Feathers in 1988 during story time with his sons, Chris and Chad when they said, “Dad, tell us a story about a bird and a bear.” In the early days, Chris and Chad were the two mice who saved Feathers and in the process saved Ben.

Over the last twenty-six years, he occasionally pulled the handwritten story from the file thinking he would someday share it with the world. Now is the time.

Today, Chris has two beautiful daughters whom he loves dearly: Susan, who is seven, and Sarah, who is four. They love the story of Ben and Feathers, and of course, the two mice are now Susan and Sarah.
As in life, this story has many twists and turns. Ben and Feathers show us how to open our hearts and dream of a better day. In the end, they teach us that bullies do not always win and that you are never too small to make a difference.
