Summary
While his dad is distracted with "boring dad talk," little Luke breaks free to chase a flock of pigeons. The simple, repetitive text will appeal to new readers, but it's the frenetic pace and comic timing of the cartoon illustrations that will really grab their attention. Kids will eagerly turn the pages as Luke chases the pigeons through a diverse cityscape with single-minded slapstick abandon -- leaving a trail of chaos behind him -- until he finally catches the birds, and settles down for a nap in their rooftop roost. -- Description by Rebecca Honeycutt
