King of the Sky
This book is about a bird who is a champion. I like that you can find a sooty, black cat and the bird itself on almost every page! I also like how the author describes the bird: "its head was whiter than a splash of milk, its eye blazed fire". As I am half Italian, I was surprised with happiness when I read "Re del cielo" which the boy named the champion bird with. Equally, I loved the illustration of a piazza in Rome with all the racing birds and the icecream shop (gelateria!) in the background. It made me remember of the times when I sit on the doorstep of the gelateria in Italy, licking my ice cream and watching the pigeons doing their run-ups and searching for food on the ground! It was such a pleasure to read this book!
I rate King of the Sky ?????.
I would recommend it to year 1 onwards.
