Fly High, Fly Low

Don Freeman. Viking Books, $16.99 (56pp) ISBN 978-0-670-03685-1

Don Freeman's 1957 tale, Fly High, Fly Low, set against the foggy backdrop of San Francisco, charts the city life of Sid and Midge, two pigeons who make their home in the ""B"" of the Bay Hotel sign. When the building is demolished, Sid frantically searches for his mate and their two eggs. The creator of Corduroy gives the city a charming colored-pencil tribute with portraits of glowing sunsets, the Golden Gate Bridge spanning the shimmering bay and a trolley car cresting a hill.
