Description

High above the rooftops of Rome, Angelo begins his work restoring the facade of a once-glorious church. As with every project, he start his final masterpiece by clearing away the years of debris left behind by the many pigeons who nest in the nooks and crannies of Rome's great architecture. There, among the sticks and feathers, he discovers a wounded bird, and finding no safe place to leave her, Angelo becomes the pigeon's reluctant savior.

With expressive, detailed illustrations infused with the warm terra-cotta glow of the Mediterranean, David Macaulay will once again capture his readers' hearts and imaginations in this poignant story of enduring friendship.
