Product description

WINNER of the Greenhouse Funny Prize; SHORTLISTED for the Sainsbury’s Book Award and numerous regional awards, this hilarious series is adored by its readers!

Have you ever sat in a shoebox? Of course you have. But have you ever sat in one when your best friend Dave has spread his feathery self out so wide that his cheesy feet are right up your beak and an old banana is taking up the rest of the space? I didn’t think so.

This is where our story begins . . .

Dave Pigeon and his best friend Skipper are travelling in a box to Pawsville Vets . . . maybe Dave will finally get his broken wing fixed.

The pet shop is full of new friends . . . Jet the dog, Cricket Ball Face the hamster . . . and with friendship comes a bit of healthy competition, and what could be better than a race for a racing pigeon? But the only animal who thinks Dave is capable of going up against the infamous Mickey Lightning is Dave himself.

The third instalment to this laugh-out-loud new series is fully illustrated throughout by the incredible Sheena Dempsey.
