Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

From the moment she sees it, Stella wants to capture the one-legged pigeon and make it her pet. Enlisting the reluctant help of her neighbor Gerald, she begins planning how she might catch the bird, which she has already named Harvey. Trouble is, her older brother Levi and his friends also want to get ahold of the pigeon, along with a host of others; in fact, it seems the entire population of tiny Meadville, South Carolina, has designs on that pesky pigeon. Who will catch it? Will it wind up as a pigeon pie? And what does a little brown dog have to do with everything? Life is slow in Meadville, and O’Connor is equally slow and deliberate in telling her story. But that’s part of this novel’s whimsical charm, and, fortunately, it’s laced with just enough suspense to keep readers awake and happy on a dozy afternoon. Grades 4-6. --Michael Cart --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
