        Comments about The Pigeon Wants a Puppy!:

        My granddaughter (six years old) loves to read and re-read it and does different voices of the characters. It is fun for us to read it together.
        I love the simple idea that is like a life lesson for youngsters. The drawings are very expressive.

        'A positively potty, snigger and titter aloud story about a bird who wants a dog! The pics are hilarious - especially when the puppy makes an appearance. Look out for his lolloping tongue! Pigeon's a loveable little character, and you'll find yourself repeating his catchphrases to your mates once you've read the book a couple of times!' CITV
