This was a pigeon war story. It would seem like an odd book, but I liked it. A little different, but that's good, isn't it? One of my classmates read it last year, and she liked it. So, another one that kids like, but adults wouldn't get why it was so charming. It was sort of like a fairytale. Not the plot, but the writing style. Over all, a good book that makes you think.
