The author says “This story is for anyone who feels that the way they are expected to be doesn’t reflect who they truly are.” It’s a really thoughtful and insightful look at accepting your own identity and finding friends who accept you too.
I like the emotional journey that Keith goes through to discover his true self. Personally, I think pigeons are rats with wings, but apparently Keith likes them for some reason. I definitely liked his strong personality and how he thoroughly committed to being a pigeon. haha!
The illustrations are cute and imaginative. The color scheme is mostly blue and orange, and that gives a nice consistent feeling to all the art work. The best thing about the artwork is all the little extra funny details hidden in some of the pictures. In the background of one page, there is a pigeon pooping on a ladies head! Haha! Oh dear. I didn’t care for that particular detail, but I’m sure children would find it hilarious!
This book is a silly and fun exploration of identity with a positive message told in a relatable way.
