A sweet, funny little story about a young child's big adventure chasing pigeons through the city. We read this when Boy Detective was five, and I thought he might find the story too simple, but he paid a lot more attention to the pictures than I initially did and ended up laughing at all of Luke's antics. I think I was also distracted by empathizing with Luke's frantic parents!

I especially loved finding this because children's books are sadly lacking in diversity of characters, and kids' comics even moreso! This is one of the only comics for kids featuring a child of color that we've been able to find.

A fun book to read with a pre schooler.

A day in the park turns into a madcap urban romp in this graphic novel for beginning readers. 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.

Cute! Keep an eye out for figures from a classic kid's adventure series hiding in the background.
