I’m so proud that Dave Pigeon (Royal Coo!) is flying free and will soon be arriving on the shores of Aotearoa in May.

To celebrate, you are invited to a right royal shindig here in Christchurch, New Zealand. There will be crafts, drinks, nibbles and a book signing.

Please do bring your family and friends along for lots of Dave Pigeon fun!

Happy World Book Day!

Thank you so much to all the readers, parents, guardians, carers, educators, librarians, teachers, booksellers, bloggers, volunteers and absolutely everyone else who has ever helped get Dave Pigeon books into the hands of readers.

Every year it blows my mind that fans sit down and create costumes and other brilliant things all inspired by Dave Pigeon. My heart is always bursting with joy to see these pigeontastic creations. Let’s face it, it’s not easy with all those feathers, so thank you very much for all your hard work.

Here are some particularly brilliant Dave Pigeon creations from World Book Day 2019:

Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah!

They very kindly asked ME to launch their channel with their very first video. Have a watch, listen to me jabber on about books and remember to subscribe to this brilliant channel.
