Minnie and her trusty cat, Max, are gearing up for the annual pigeon race. However, their skills at detection are called upon to find a missing championship pigeon. Lubotsky 's presentation is perfect for a youthful audience, she glides from "pigeon talk" to a creaky elderly voice and then sings a beautiful old folk song with ease and grace. She also excels in presenting Minnie's older brother and his girlfriend, who is a cop. Minnie and her myriad friends all live at the seaside and enjoy wonderful camaraderie as they attempt to capture the pigeon thief. A player piano, its wonderful old songs and a cookie recipe from Minnie add to the homey atmosphere of this magical story. S.G.B.
