Description of this Book

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). This must mean if you are a cat and you are able to read this, 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. Dave Pigeon is writing a book on how he defeated Mean Cat in order to help fellow pigeons everywhere. Cats beware! This is a hilarious debut for 6+ readers with black and white illustrations by the superbly talented Sheena Dempsey.

Author's Bio

Swapna Haddow lives in London with her karate-chopping, swash-buckling son (his words not hers), her thirty-something, age-sensitive husband and Gary the hamster. She spends her time writing, eating cake and making sure her son doesn't flatten her husband as he attempts to master his human cannonball trick. Sometimes she does all three at the same time.Sheena Dempsey is a children's author and illustrator. She loves to draw all kinds of animals, from dirty rats to mean cats and heroic pigeons too. She has worked with various publishers in Ireland and the UK including Walker Books, Templar Publishing, Hachette, Faber and Little Island. She lives in London with her partner, Mick, and their naughty greyhound, Sandy.
