Description - Gary by Leila Rudge
Gary, a grounded racing pigeon, dreams of exploring the world - until the day he falls into an adventure of his very own.
A story of perseverance and being comfortable in your own skin, perfect for anyone who has ever felt like the odd one out, this is the story one pigeon's big adventure. Most of the time, Gary is just like the other racing pigeons, eating and sleeping and dreaming of adventure. There's just one thing that separates him from the ordinary pigeons: he can't fly. When his friends set off in their travel basket, Gary expects to stay at home, organizing his scrapbook of travel mementos and imagining far-off places. But when he accidentally falls into the travel basket and ends up a very long way from home, he discovers that flying might not be the only way to have adventures...
