The doves flock together, nest together, and sing together. In the winter they travel south, in the spring they return north. Then one day a new bird flies on the scene. A big, noisy bird with twin engines and lots of legroom. The strange new bird ruffles the flock's feathers. But even as the doves turn their backs on him, their unwelcome companion makes himself quite useful. He might even teach them a new way to fly. . . .

Gilbert Ford's debut picture book combines the right amount of silliness with a heartwarming message about finding one's place in the world.
