As part of her ‘Irresistable Illustrated Fiction‘ round up, librarian Jo Clarke has reviewed Dave Pigeon (Racer!) and I couldn’t be more thrilled with the glowing review:
Thank you so much, Book Lover Jo! Have a read of all the brilliant books reviewed here.
Sheena and I visited Plymouth to meet pupils from The Cathedral School of St Mary, St. Andrew’s C of E Primary School and Laira Green Primary School. The Plymouth Schools Library Services team hosted an incredible event at the Guildhall and we couldn’t have been more pleased to debut Dave Pigeon (Racer!) to the brilliant pupils who joined us.
Along with their own designs, together, the pupils created a new villainous character who was brilliantly named ‘Pointy Crillon’.
The children went on to create a brand new story for Dave Pigeon and Skipper which saw the feathery duo in the Land of Dragons facing off against three dragons with just a marshmallow. Dave and Skipper then had to escape Pointy Crillon via a trapdoor. The pigeons arrived in Candy Land, thinking the coast was clear, only to be set upon by the trio of dragons again. They escaped the hungry dragons, dressed up as candy floss and made it all the way to The End.
Thank you so much to all the staff and pupils who came along and a HUGE thank you to Julia and Team Plymouth SLS who looked after us during our visit.
Our first review for Dave Pigeon (Racer!) is in and I couldn’t be more delighted. Reviewed by the team behind North Somerset Teachers’ Book Award, who awarded Dave Pigeon the Read Aloud Award back in 2016, this is a very special review for Team Dave Pigeon. Have a read of the full review here.
Thank you lovely North Somerset teachers!
The Dave Pigeon Christmas tree is up so I’m signing off. I’ll be working on some exciting new projects so watch this space.
Have a feathertastic festive season and I’ll see you in January for the launch of Dave Pigeon (Racer!).
Advance copies of Dave Pigeon (Racer!) have been flying around and I’ve finally got my hands on a copy. I’m so proud to finally see the finished book and I can’t wait for you all to see it too, when it lands in bookshops and libraries next month.
In the meantime, enjoy the three Dave Pigeon book siblings hanging out together on top of a bookcase:
