Book Review #607
Gay-Neck: The Story Of A Pigeon by Dhan Gopal Mukerji
Rating: one star (out of four)

I read 60 pages of this book before I put it down.  The story might have been more interesting if I liked pigeons and wanted to read about them, but as it was, I thought it was a little too slow and a bit patronizing.  I can see it being popular when it was first published in 1927, but that was over 80 years ago, and I'm not sure how applicable it is to children today.  I might recommend if someone was a hardcore Newbery Medal fan or loved birds.
