Or that they have something special in common with penguins, flamingos, and even the dodo? With his trademark mix of humor, well-researched facts and artistry, artist Kevin McCloskey delivers the straight poop on these humble creatures, which turn out to be . . . Coo, coo, COOL!When Kevin McCloskey lived in Hoboken, New Jersey, he met Vinnie Torre, one of the last remaining pigeon racers in America. Torre taught McCloskey all about pigeons, and he was the one that first told him about pigeon milk. Nowadays, McCloskey teaches at Kutztown University in Pennsylvania. Hes best known for We Dig Worms!, his TOON book on how worms might seem gross but are actually a necessary and cool part of the environment. McCloskey hopes to teach kids to appreciate the nature around them, even kids who live in cities where many of the animal inhabitants are considered to be pests.
