On the Road to Mr. Mineo's: 05/10/14
On the Road to Mr. Mineo's by Barbara O'Connor is about a one-legged homing pigeon who for reasons all his own, decides to not go home for a while. I received an audio copy for review via LibraryThing's Early Reader Program.
A group of kids in Meadville, South Carolina all want the pigeon. Meanwhile, Mr. Mineo just wants the pigeon back. But Sherman has his own plans and only a little white dog seems to know what they are.
The book is short, poetic, and thoroughly delightful. The reader of the audio does a perfect job of bringing the characters to life.
I recommend this book to anyone looking for an uplifting children's book where the dog doesn't die. I think it will also appeal to fans of the Everything on a Waffle books.
