Nicola Davies: King of the Sky, illustrated by Laura Carlin (Paperback)
A breathtaking new picture book written by Nicola Davies and illustrated by one of our favourites, Laura Carlin. This book tells the tender story of an immigrant boy who feels lost and alone, until he meets an old man who keeps racing pigeons. Together they pin their hopes on an underdog pigeon and proclaim him "King of the Sky". Full of double-page spreads in Carlin's understated but uniquely expressive style, this book will appeal to adults as well as children. King of the Sky is endorsed by Amnesty International as it upholds our right to a home and a place to belong in these frightening times. Paperback.
