Real Pigeons Fight Crime is the funny story of a squad of crime-fighting pigeons that solve mysteries together. It is guaranteed to have your children in gales of laughter as they set out on an adventure together with Frillback, Homey, Tumbler and Rock to find out why all the breadcrumbs have disappeared, who is kidnapping bats and whether the Real Pigeons can avoid a dinner disaster.
You’ll love to meet the four unique pigeons in this book, their comical personalities each brought to life through hilarious illustrations in a comic-book style. This means there are lots of full-page illustrations, making it a great choice for those children who are moving away from picture books to middle-grade chapter books. It also means that it will capture the imagination of even a reluctant reader and that it will appeal to younger children too, because of the fantastic humour that will have them giggling and lots of illustrations that will hold their attention.
The three stories are as imaginative as they are silly, and will definitely have you looking at your local pigeons a bit differently! If you enjoy this book then be sure to keep an eye out for the next books in this Real Pigeons series which are coming soon.
