This is the most original story I have read in a while!
The title, A Pigeon's Tale, is perfect since it's a tale told by a pigeon named Walter.
Some of the vocabulary and science terms were above me. Even though I didn't fully understand them, it did not interfere with my overall understanding and enjoyment of the story.
Readers of all ages will like this story. This tale evokes almost every emotion imaginable! As Walter tells the story of his long life (hundreds of years long) the reader will cry, laugh, gasp, and celebrate.
