Dave Pigeon: How to Deal With Bad Cats and Keep (Most of) Your Feathers
‘If you can read this, you obviously understand Pigeonese. You may read my book.
If you’re a cat and you’ve learnt Pigeonese (HA HA HA! As if a cat would be smart enough to learn Pigeonese) . . .
If you are a cat and you are able to read this, it must mean you have taken a pigeon hostage so that you can trick them into translating the Pigeonese words into Meow. I demand you release the hostage pigeon now. My book contains TOP SECRET ideas that are NONE of a cat’s business.’
Signed: Dave Pigeon
Join Dave Pigeon and his sidekick Skipper on their quest to defeat the most evil cat in town. There will be funny bits and scary bits and biscuity bits as these two daring pigeons pledge to make the world a better place for pigeons everywhere. With black and white illustrations from the superbly talented Sheena Dempsey.
It’s time to decide if you are Team Dave Pigeon or Team Mean Cat.
