In 1913 a working class man who raised pigeons entered one in a race from Rome back to England. Everyone expected Charlie Hudson to lose his bird, but no one expected a great storm to wipe out all the pigeons . . . all except one. This true story is told through Dave Sudbury's acclaimed lyrics and Hans Saefkow's gorgeous illustrations.
