A reissue of the classic Australian picture book by Jeannie Baker about pigeons in iconic Hyde Park.
"Millicent" is a warm and gentle story about an old lady’s daily wanderings through Hyde Park to feed the pigeons. Along the way, we hear Millicent’s thoughts and feelings towards the pigeons that she so dearly loves. Her dream is to find enough feathers on the ground to make a coat, hat, bag and shoes so she will be warm and cosy, ‘just like a pigeon.’
