Tucson, AZ – WEBWIRE

Honest, direct and straight ahead. It shows how a problem can be solved with a little thought”, one reader shared her view of the story.

This book, inspired by everyday occurrences in her neighborhood that the author was able to witness, is an amusing read following the story of Mr. and Mrs. Dove as they make their way through every problem they encounter.
The story begins as the two look for a place to build a nest to start a family. But it isn’t as simple as it sounds because from there, several problems arise; the leaves and twigs won’t stay in place on the lights where they chose to build their nest, their little ones named Darla and Davy become too big for the nest as they grow up, and then one of them refuses to learn to fly.
Aside from the main characters, readers will also learn values from other characters in the story as they too, find their way past their own dilemmas.
Gatrell’s way of educating children through Mr. and Mrs. Dove’s predicaments is guaranteed to expose every child’s mind with the knowledge; that there are ways to face challenges as they stumble upon them and that they too can become effective problem solvers.
One reader shared her view of the story saying: “Honest, direct and straight ahead. It shows how a problem can be solved with a little thought.”
