A moving and uplifting tale of two children and their parents, and the beloved pet doves that help them to understand one another.

"Fei, fei — fly, fly, little birds, but always come home to me!"

Mei-Mei and Di-Di are head-over-heels in love with their new doves. Like devoted parents, the siblings tenderly nurture Butterfly and Squeaky as they grow from chicks to fledglings to birds. But when Mei-Mei and Di-Di arrive home to find that the doves have disappeared, their young hearts break into a thousand pieces — and they run away, determined to reclaim their beloved birds. Will Mei-Mei and Di-Di return home with the doves before they break their own parents’ hearts?

About the Author:

Belle Yang was born in Taiwan and came to the United States with her parents at the age of seven. She has written and illustrated two highly praised adult books and two picture books, including HANNAH IS MY NAME. She lives in Carmel, California.

From Booklist:

Set in northern China, this introduces twins Mei-Mei and her brother, DiDi, who leave for school each morning with their mother's words ringing in their ears: Fei, fei fly little birds, but always come home to me. Finally given a longed-for pair of young doves, the twins raise and protect them with loving care. When the children release them to fly, they repeat their mother's phrase, and all is well until their father gives their doves to his brother. Mei-Mei and DiDi stow away on their uncle's wagon in an attempt to reclaim their birds; at last, father and uncle realize how dearly the twins love their pets. The father's insensitivity is an unconvincing element in the story, though Yang tries to explain it by showing him as busy and hardworking. The story incorporates a few Chinese words, but the illustrations provide more cultural flavor than the lackluster narrative. The simply executed paintings add color and energy to a slight but sweet story. Perkins, Linda
