Somewhere in the Italian hills, a homing pigeon is released. She soars quickly and follows an old road, which (of course) leads to Rome. (from the first line)
A pigeon carrying an important message takes the reader on a unique tour which includes both ancient and modern parts of the city of Rome. *Author: MacAulay, David *Publication Date: 2011/01/03 *Number of Pages: 79 *Binding Type: Paperback *Grade Level: 3-4 *Language: English *Depth: 0.25 *Width: 9.00 *Height: 12.50
From the Publisher:
A pigeon carrying an important message takes the reader on a unique tour through Rome. As we follow the path of this somewhat wayward bird, we discover that Rome is a place where past and present live side by side. Every time a corner is turned there is a surprise, just as every turn of the page brings a new perspective. This juxtaposition of ancient and modern, as seen with David Macaulay's ingenious vision, gives the reader an imaginative and informative journey through this wondrous city.
Annotation:
In this nearly wordless book, readers trace the journey of a homing pigeon flying over the streets of Rome in order to deliver an important message to a hardworking artist. As the pigeon takes an extended route to her destination, readers are treated to a tour of the historic city. Illustrated with detailed b&w drawings.
Author Bio
David Macaulay
English-born David Macaulay and his family moved to the United States when he was 11. Interested in drawing and technology since childhood, he attended the Rhode Island School of Design, where he majored in architecture and eventually became an art instructor. It was during this time that he began to create books. His first published work, CATHEDRAL, appeared in 1973 and was quickly lauded a landmark work in the field of informational books for children. In 1990, David Macaulay won the Caldecott Medal for his book BLACK AND WHITE.

Praise

New York Times
"Macaulay's illustrations recall elegant copper-plate engravings from earlier centuries, with every plane delineated by fine lines or fields of cross-hatching that are a marvel of intricacy." - David W. Dunlap 11/16/1997

Washington Post Book World
"...yet another impressive book by Macaulay, and an imaginative introduction to one of the world's greatest cities." - Michael Dirda 01/04/1998
