Pigeons are a great introduction to urban nature. This book does a remarkable thing: it brings to our attention the fact that taken-for-granted pigeons, or rock doves, are beautiful birds. It also helps us to appreciate the vibrant beat of a city--from the eye-view of a pigeon. The text is bouncy. Kids will want to make all the screech, hiss, ker-chunk, pound, and tweet city sounds. Amazing polymer clay illustrations pop right off the page and through die-cut windows. Each illustration was crafted entirely from polymer clay and then photographed.
