“The Poeming Pigeon: Poems about Food”
The first eleven issues of The Poeming Pigeon featured original cover illustrations by Robert R. Sanders, introducing “Homer” our pigeon mascot donning his favorite chapeaus & unique accessories to celebrate each thematic issue.
We all know that pigeons aren’t necessarily picky eaters. But Homer has a much more sophisticated palate—for food, and now “poems about food.” Robert had fun adding a chef’s hat, spatula, and rolling pin to the illustration. Once the “cooking” was done, it was time for a picnic, complete with a red gingham tablecloth. Just watch out for those ants; luckily, they were only crawling on a corner of the back cover. Bon Appetit!
