Keith Among the Pigeons

By Katie Brosnan
Child’s Play 
Ages 4–8

Keith was born a cat, but he’s never truly felt feline. He tries to do cat things, but scratching posts and chasing birds just doesn’t feel right. What he really wants is to get to know the pigeons, live amongst them and explore their lives. Veiled just enough to be subtle to its young readers, this story is an instructive metaphor about acceptance and identity. Author Katie Brosnan avoids sanctimony with a quirky, clever story and surprisingly moving and evocative illustrations that add depth and personality.
