A Pocket Guide to Pigeon Watching (2021, Workman Publishing Company) 4 stars

Misunderstood birds made known

4 stars

reviewed On the Horizon by Lois Lowry

5 stars

I was deeply moved by the descriptions of humanity and the way Lowry tries to unify and distinguish human experience.

Kenard Pak's illustrations are also the perfect pairing to Lowry's sparse descriptive prose.
