‘Angelo’ by David Macaulay

‘Angelo’ is a touching tale about an elderly man who, when restoring a church, discovers an injured bird. Despite disliking pigeons, Angelo reluctantly rescues the bird and devotes his time to caring for his new feathered friend – which he names Sylvia. Care and compassion are clear throughout, with Angelo and Sylvia continuing their friendship over the years. Towards the end, Angelo begins to worry about what will happen to Sylvia when he’s gone, so he makes sure to find her a permanent home in one of the restored building he’s been working on.
