Any bird can find adventure. Even Gary. Now in paperback!

Gary the pigeon can't fly. When his racing pigeon friends head off in their travel basket, Gary stays at home. He organises his scrapbook of travel mementos and dreams about the adventures the other pigeons are having. But when Gary accidentally ends up a very long way from home, he discovers that flying is not the only way to have adventures. A story for birds who dare to dream.

Ted, her first picture book as both author and illustrator, was a CBCA Notable Book.

WRITE A REVIEW

My child LOVES this book

I bought this book as a Christmas present for my 21 month old son. In a previous review I said that he enjoyed it, but not as much as Goodnight Goodnight Construction site. However, I think I got that wrong. Gary is our 'go to' book now. It has beautiful illustrations and a sweet story. Highly recommend.

A lovely story

I bought this as a Christmas present for my 21 month old son. It has a nice story and lovely illustrations, but it hasn't caught his attention quite as much as 'Goodnight Goodnight Construction Site'. I am sure he will enjoy it as he gets older.

South west Victoria, Australia.

Charming tale.

I bought six childrens' books from Booktopia, 3 for each grandson for Christmas. This was one of those. I read it and was charmed by the story of intrepid little pigeon, Gary. He is unable to fly but using lateral thinking he travelled far and wide anyway and thus this charming story.

Sydney, Australia.
