" Sarah] Verroken's rich, boldly colored woodblock prints provide an appropriately outdoorsy, textured feel. The birds' unusual appearances highlight their unique personalities: In his oversized undershirt, mighty yellow Pigeon towers over the minute, blue Pigeonette. With their black boots and outstretched wings, the loving duo enlivens each speckled spread. Playing with perspective and size, curved lines support the warm interactions. . . . This quirky tale will beguile." "Kirkus Reviews.
