Together they pin their dreams on a race across Euorpe and the special bird they hope can win it: King of the Sky. Words and pictures combine to evoke a Welsh mining town where a boy feels excluded and misses his Italian home.

Before entering into a commitment of the eagle, the male bird tests the commitment level of the female bird, and also female bird tests the commitment level of the male bird. Evans goes weaker, and the boy's doubt that his pigeon, King of the Sky, is a winner grows stronger, the bird is entered into a long distance race of more than 1,000 miles beginning in Rome. In a story full of hope against adversity, King of the Sky tells how flying a homing pigeon helps a young boy comes to terms with his life in a strange country far, far from home. Nicola Davies is an award-winning author whose many books for children include A First Book of Nature, Ice Bear, Big Blue Whale, Dolphin Baby, Bat Loves the Night and the Silver Street Farm series.

This will work for group readings, but will be much more special for one-on-one sharing, where readers can absorb the language and pore over the detailed, nuanced pictures. I hear you - I also invite you to expand your understanding of what a picture book can be (and who they are for). Mr Evans had told him he was a good bird for distance flying and they filled out the form for him to go on the train to Rome and fly a thousand miles home. I was at my last school for 4 years and we had ********* book fairs every term – and every term, I was disappointed by the narrow range of books.

We like the end papers best, these were covered with lots of paintings of different types and colours of pigeon, we enjoyed choosing our favourites.We also should be wise enough to figure out the commitment of people who we are going to intend for the rest of our life.
