    I do not know what beat harder, my heart or my wings as I struggled up into the night sky Colorado author S A Mahan writes about what she lives a part of nature in the mountains of Colorado She raises alpacas, enjoys the fiber arts, and is an avid outdoorswoman, hiking the Rocky Mountain trails gathering ideas for her stories A wife, mother and grandmother, she believes that every human life is infinitely valuable, born or unborn, and worth fighting for, that we must listen to God or lose our way, and that good will triumph over evil Mahan elects to write this young adult novel in the voice of a pigeon hence the title of the book Other writers falter when attempting to take on the form of an animal to relate a story, but in this case the writing is so very natural that we identify with the main character Walter almost immediately.To introduce the story Mahan offers the following He attacked shortly after midnight, when all of the lights at the ranch were turned down, the half moon had set below the horizon, and all of the dogs were sound asleep The coop had carried a strange smell all day long I could not place it, so I asked my mother earlier that afternoon Don t worry, little one, she soothed me, some of the others are just a little nervous You smell their nerves They get that way once in a while But I caught a rare glint in her eye and suddenly realized that she was also on edge And I realized whatever that strange smell was, the...

    As the name suggests, humans are not all that important in this story, because the characters are pigeons The main character goes by a number of names throughout the story, so you can take your pick on what you want to call him This concept was something I had to get used to, but then I came to enjoy it The things that birds go through day to day are a little bit different than what humans do, even if some of the things in this book were a bit fictionalized You are still able to see what the main perils and differences are, as well as appreciate them I especially liked the character of Old Dude, not only because of how he treated the main character, but also because of his particular style of speaking, which was fun to read Cozy up to this book when you wan...

    In this endearing, quasi science fiction book for older children and their parents a young pigeon must grow up fast to fulfill his destiny.The story is told from the point of view of an 800 year old pigeon named Walter, who is pecking out his life s story, from his early years living happily with his family in a pigeon coop to his role in saving the world during a natural disaster Because Walter is remarkably intelligent and descended from a noble line of pigeons, he is able to communicate with humans and birds alike.S.A Mahan fills her book with of memorable characters, including Old Dude, a funny, eccentric pigeon who takes Walter under his wing Margie, a tough talking pigeon from New York and humans, such as Grandpa, who had the foresight to build a space capsule able to withstand the cosmic shift of the planet.The smoothly written story is divided into short chapters and is often funny Readers will be amused when Old Dude teaches Walter to scrounge for food by following the little uns at a fast food restaurant s play area because they inevitably drop their food Or when Margie who provides hilarious comic relief throughout shamelessly flirts with a big gray pigeon Yo babe, I m Bruno from Queens, says the pigeon No doubt about it, Handsome Margie replies.The story also fe...

    This young adult tale of a pigeon s journey from his home to a new one and the dangers he faces even beyond is aimed at older children and teenagers I think the author did a fantastic job in showcasing each birds differences and how they use their unique skills to help Walter our pigeon along his way Walter himself has an exceptional talent himself he can communicate with humans He uses this skill to help figure out what Grandfather is building in the barn, why he is building it and what will come to necessitate such a wondrous contraption I like that this story showcases that there are many differences in everyone on this planet but we all can bring something to the table if we are open to accept that we are all also similar in ou...

    Alright, I m just going to say it This book is nuts But in a good way In order to understand how crazy this is, scroll up and read the description again, but read it outloud, and say it as if you re a hyperactive nine year old, and take out all punctuation, and don t actually yell it outloud, but say it in a voice loud enough to where your mother would tell you to use your inside voice DOESN T THAT SOUND CRAZY And that is exactly why I enjoyed this book as much as I did.I can t figure out a way to talk about this book without sounding overly negative, since I am fairly positive about the book overall For example I really enjoy the fact that this book doesn t get overly bogged down in making sense Okay, so it s about a pigeon that is tasked with saving the human race from The Big One, so there s already a lot of suspension of disbelief But you will find yourself ...
