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.’

Industry Reviews
Very simple at first glance - Baker's idea of what might be going through the head of the lady she sees daily feeding the pigeons in Hyde Park, Sydney. However, it leaves you with the message of needing to feel wanted. I love that she has included so many of the people she sees in the park, especially the regulars -- Nicole * goodreads *
Jeannie Baker masterfully brings to life the world of Hyde Park, Sydney (or any public park, for that matter). Her collage people are so realistic that you feel you could step in amongst them to live their reality, Millicent the pigeon lady especially. Gorgeous! -- Emkoshka * goodreads *
