Gay Neck, The Story of a Pigeon 1928 Medal Winner *

Gay Neck, The Story of a Pigeon tells of a boy in India and his adventures raising a pigeon who becomes a messenger in World War I.

First of all, children today probably won't be able to get past the pigeon's name which means multi-colored. But if they can, they probably won't last beyond the first few pages. Reading this book felt like a chore, especially when the story is told through the eyes of the pigeon.
