ISBN: 9781761211546
Australian: Yes
Published: 2023 by Hardie Grant Children\'s Publishing
Part of the Real Pigeons series
Level: Primary Years (3-5)


This book blends the best features of graphic novels and conventional narrative and has multiple entry points, making it one of the most accessible novels for younger readers. It is very well put together with strong characterisation, backed by hilarious illustrations. The design is less constrained than that of a graphic novel, and the language shows a similar quality approach. The action keeps coming, even though it appears the real pigeons are just flapping about and fighting crime. Disguised as lighthearted and silly fun, this book offers deep themes such as sticking together, good /evil, and selflessness. The illustrations are cleverly crafted and integrated with the text adding much meaning and context to the plot.
