Summary: (from my library catalog) When a young boy moves from his home in Italy to Wales, the only thing that cheers him up are the racing pigeons that Mr. Evans keeps in a loft behind his house.
Resources/Activities: find an atlas and plot out the journey for King of the Sky; research racing pigeons; read other migration oriented stories like, Migrant by Maxine Trottier.
