A reissue of the classic Australian picture book by Jeannie Baker about an old lady who feeds the pigeons in Hyde Park.
Millicent is a gentle story about an old lady's daily wanderings through Hyde Park to feed the pigeons. She never stops to speak to anyone except the birds, who fly towards her when she arrives. Along the way, we hear Millicent's thoughts and feelings towards the pigeons that she so dearly loves and cares for. Her dream is to find enough feathers on the ground to make a coat, hat, bag and shoes so she will be warm and cosy, â˜just like a pigeon.' Millicent features Jeannie Baker's intricately detailed collages which capture a particular Australian atmosphere and place in time.
