Personal response/rating: I rate this book a five because it is such a good read for young readers. The pictures and the story line are excellent. It keeps the reader entertained, the pigeon’s comments are funny, and we all have those days where we really want something, but change our mind.
Question I would ask before the reading: Have you ever wanted something so badly until you saw it in real life?
