Summary: Mark and Timmie’s landlord has a whole loft of prize-winning carrier pigeons, but the gruff man said “absolutely no pets” when he rented the small house to the boys’ mother. So Mark and Timmie can only watch the pigeons–including Blue Boy, their favorite–from across the fence and wish they had a pet of their own. But what will happen when their landlord is hospitalized and can’t care for his pigeons? How will Blue Boy and the other pigeons survive without the watchful eye and care of their owner? Will the boys’ dream for their very own pet ever come true?
