Not Pigeons I hear you say. Always trying to steal your chips or just generally being annoying. Well you obviously haven’t met any pigeons like Dave and Skipper. Join the duo on a laugh-out-loud adventure full of madcap plans, plenty of napping and lots of delicious biscuits (particularly the ones with jam in the middle).
Friends Dave and Skipper like nothing more than munching on a croissant. When they meet a Human Lady with a basket full of sandwiches, biscuits and croissants the pair can not believe their luck. But the Human Lady isn’t alone and Dave and Skipper immediately sense danger. Injured in an altercation with the Human Lady’s ferocious pet cat, Dave and his buddy Skipper find themselves in the care of Human Lady and reside in her shed for some recuperation and recovery time. Having briefly experienced Human Lady’s house and the smells of delicious treats the duo quite fancy the home for themselves. If only they could work out a way to get rid of Mean Cat…
Adults and children will love sharing this book about the hilarious comedic-duo that are Dave and Skipper. Whether you are laughing at Dave’s over-confidence and bossiness or giggling at Skipper as he is required to carry out Dave's crazy plans, there is never a dull moment. It is the perfect comedy read with messages about friendship and bravery, and proof that pigeon will just about go to any lengths to get their beaks on a baked treat.
A very accessible book for readers who are beginning to read chapter books. The chapters are short and the book is illustrated throughout with entertaining sketches by Sheena Dempsey. The action and laughs are non-stop as the two pigeons plot their revenge on Mean Cat. Just make sure your biscuits are hidden away or you might find Dave with his beak in them.
Recommended for 6+.
