"Millicent is a gentle story about an old lady's daily wanderings through Hyde Park to feed the pigeons. She never stops to speak to anyone except the birds, who fly towards her when she arrives. Along the way, we hear Millicent's thoughts and feelings towards the pigeons that she so dearly loves and cares for. Her dream is to find enough feathers on the ground to make a coat, hat, bag and shoes so she will be warm and cosy, just like a pigeon. Millicent features Jeannie Bakers intricately detailed collages which capture a particular Australian atmosphere and place in time."--Provided by publisher
