King of the Sky

Author: Nicola Davies
Illustrator: Laura Carlin

This second collaboration between author Nicola Davies and illustrator Laura Carlin, following the successful The Promise is another sensitive and subtle picture book. Words and pictures combine to evoke a Welsh mining town where a boy feels excluded and misses his Italian home. He develops a bond with a retired miner who keeps racing pigeons and the boy comes to a fresh understanding of the meaning of belonging.
