The Central Park Peacock

There really was a coyote in New York City and there really was a peacock. Maybe there still is. Who knows.

This story is a classic chase. A chase that brings two characters into a very unlikely and very problematic place. Two wild animals in a wild city.

The chase illuminates the power of imagination, of taking an idea and running with it. Running all over the place.

Illustrated in vivid watercolor by Olivia Pettengill. 26 illustrations!
