“ K-bridge: A Story About Discovery introduces the main characters of a flock of pigeons, the K-bridge flock, so named because their home is beneath a great bridge, the K-bridge, in a rail yard. These characters will grow and develop during all the books that make up the total story. In Discovery, we meet ten of the K-bridge birds, all that remain after the devastating loss of most of their flock at the hands of humans. Only these ten escaped death or capture, and it is up to them to ensure that the flock will go on. The birds on whose wings this heavy responsibility now lies are called Mosaic, Pepper, Cole, Rambler, Shadow, Colors, Millet, Sky, Whitehead, and Crier. Each of these birds has a role to play in the future of the flock. Each has a place in the flock’s structure, and each has specific duties he or she is expected to perform as they band together under a common goal: survival. These ten birds must create the nucleus of a new flock. They are still young, still learning the various duties and tasks they were being trained in before the raid, but now with a newly urgent emphasis. Now they must finish their education on their own, and become proficient at the complex activities of everyday life with no older, wiser birds to guide them. While most have come to terms with the tragedy, Mosaic is still struggling to cope with his anger at humans, at their lack of respect and compassion for other living things that exist on the planet with them. Since the mantle of temporary flock leader has fallen on his wings, however, he knows that he must not let emotion rule his actions....” I agree with those that have read it, that the book is charming and imaginative, especially how it is told from the main charters perspective, the perspective of a pigeon and pigeons, but do not let that fool you the book deals with reality that all young have to face once they leave the nest or are thrown into unusual circumstances. The book also has some very good illustration created by the author, who is a very good artist that knows his media. The artwork is striking, even when presented in black and white. To me the book is a must read for anyone who enjoys a sprinkle of subtle humor, sliced with a great moral lesson, that occurs when dealing with the reality, of coming of age.
