The Dave Pigeon (Royal Coo!) Launch Party

Swapna HaddowHalfway Round the World with the Haddows, Patron of Reading Official Business, Roosting With Dave

Hurray hurray! The very brilliant Zac and my Patron of Reading school, Halswell School, hosted the Kiwi launch of Dave Pigeon (Royal Coo!) on Tuesday evening. Thank you very much to everyone who came along to celebrate and for those who didn’t manage to make it, here are some pictures from a most pigeontastic evening:

There were royal crowns for everyone.
Dave and Skipper were on hand to greet the guests.
My gorgeous fluffer didn’t want to miss out on the action.
There was a most magnificent royal cake.
There were royal activity sheets…
…And royal Cheerio bird feeders.
We even had our very own Zac the librarian as MC!
Of course, there were many many selfies.
Before I got to my reading there was an extra-special message, from Sheena Dempsey, all the way from the UK.
Here I am, reading from Dave Pigeon (Royal Coo!).
Thank you so much to everyone who came along and made it such a special event.
