They are pigeons! They are perfect! They all perfectly the same! …That is, except for that little guy over there.
We all know someone like that. Some of us are like that.
And now, we can all celebrate this journey together, along with Katherine Battersby and her adorable PERFECT PIGEON troop. This smashing picture book will be coming home to roost in Fall 2020, helmed by the luminous Karen Wojtyla at McElderry Books.
Three cheers for Katherine!
