King of the Sky


Nicola Davies and Laura Carlin

A powerful and beautifully illustrated story about migration and the meaning of home, from the award-winning team behind The Promise.

Starting a new life in a new country, a young boy feels lost and alone – until he meets an old man who keeps racing pigeons. Together they pin their hopes on a race across Europe and the special bird they believe can win it: King of the Sky. 

Great for ages 5+
Belle says: 

It's a story about a boy who feels like he's not at home and then he meets this really nice man who owns a lot of racing pigeons. And then he gives the boy one he thinks is really special and the boy calls it King of the Sky. I like the book because I can relate the boy not feeling at home and then sometimes you have to remember everywhere feels like home if you let it.
