The Wire family lives on a small dairy and hog farm in northwestern Illinois. In summer, the hay is cut, partially dried, and blown into a tall silo. The unloader is then folded and put at the top of the silo. It makes the perfect home for pigeons.

One day in the fall of 1977, Farmer Wire finds a surprise. At the top of the silo, in a nest on the unloader, is a young pigeon. Farmer Wire puts the pigeon in his pocket thinking he can now have himself a delicious squab potpie!

Fortunately for the pigeon, Farmer Wire’s sons have other plans for the little bird. They want to keep him as their pet! While the Wire boys take care of their new pet—without even knowing it—their avian friend teaches the family important lessons that will carry them through life.

In this unique, true story, Perky: Life Lessons from Our Pet Pigeon, a people-friendly pigeon teaches important life lessons to a farm family and young readers.
