Bookseller Recommendation

Coo

“A sweet and heartwarming twist on the classic raised-by-animals theme. When an infant is left on the streets of the big city, she is rescued, named Coo, and raised by a flock of pigeons. But when her favorite flockmate Burr is seriously injured, Coo has to take her first steps into a strange human society. Noel imagines a realistic and empathetic cast of characters, with Coo being the absolute star of the show, that teach us important lessons about the many different ways family and love can look. Thanks to Jesse Vilinsky's excellent voice acting in the audiobook, I found myself thinking in pigeon for weeks! She voices everyone from children to elders to pigeons with emotion and aplomb. This book is sure to become a classic!”

In this exceptional debut, one young girl’s determination to save the flock she calls family creates a lasting impact on her community and in her heart. Gorgeous and literary, this is an unforgettable animal story about friendship, family, home, and belonging. For readers who love books by Kate DiCamillo and Katherine Applegate.

Ten years ago, an impossible thing happened: a flock of pigeons picked up a human baby who had been abandoned in an empty lot and carried her, bundled in blankets, to their roof. Coo has lived her entire life on the rooftop with the pigeons who saved her. It’s the only home she’s ever known. But then a hungry hawk nearly kills Burr, the pigeon she loves most, and leaves him gravely hurt.

Coo must make a perilous trip to the ground for the first time to find Tully, a retired postal worker who occasionally feeds Coo’s flock, and who can heal injured birds. Tully mends Burr’s broken wing and coaxes Coo from her isolated life. Living with Tully, Coo experiences warmth, safety, and human relationships for the first time. But just as Coo is beginning to blossom, she learns the human world is infinitely more complex—and cruel—than she could have imagined.

This remarkable debut novel will captivate readers from the very first line. Coo examines the bonds that make us family, the possibilities of love, and the importance of being true to yourself. Fans of Katherine Applegate, Kate DiCamillo, and Barbara O’Connor will devour this extraordinary story.
