Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Dianne Ochiltree
Barnaby and Flora have just moved from the city to their family's new home in the country. How different things are! Perhaps the biggest surprise is their neighbor Gabriel, an old man who keeps tame pigeons in a corner of his attic. Barnaby rushes out to buy a pigeon of his own that the children name Jewel, and hide it in their garden shed. But Jewel soon escapes. While the children wait patiently and hope for her return, Gabriel shares both his pigeon know-how and his friendship with them. Bright, full-color illustrations enliven the text.
Library Journal
Gr 2-3-City children Flora and Barnaby are astounded by the swallows and pigeons they see in their new country home. They make friends with Gabriel, the man next door, who raises pigeons. When Barnaby's newly purchased pigeon flies off, Gabriel offers them a job helping out with his birds. A smooth translation from the original German and full-page color illustrations make an attractive volume, but do not compensate for a slight story unlikely to resonate with either city or suburban readers. Not a necessary purchase.-Lisa Smith, Lindenhurst Memorial Library, NY Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
