Product Description
Ever wonder why pigeons always act so weird? It’s because they’re out there chasing the bad guys and saving your butts!

The Real Pigeons are great crime-fighters – because most people ignore pigeons.

But when a video of the pigeons goes online, they are suddenly FAMOUS. It's much harder to solve mysteries when everyone is always watching.

And there are MANY mysteries that need solving.
  • Like who has committed a SLIME CRIME?
  • How did a flock of ROLLING PIGEONS vanish into thin air?
  • And why would anyone try to catch FRILLBACK in a cage?
Can the Real Pigeons STAY COO in the spotlight? Or are their crime-fighting days over?

Nickelodeon is developing an animated movie and TV series based on Real Pigeons Fight Crime, to be produced by James Corden and Ben Winston!
  • With over 200,000 books in print and legions of fans worldwide, the REAL PIGEONS series is perfect for fans of Bad Guys and Dog Man.
  • Every book contains THREE hilarious, silly and engrossing mysteries!
  • Shortlisted for the 2019 Readings Children’s Book Prize and the 2019 & 2020 ABIA Book of the Year for Younger Children.

Industry Reviews
‘With comic-style black and white illustrations throughout, it’s the energetic, exciting pictures that lead the Real Pigeons’ heroic exploits. The good guys are really good, the bad guys are really bad, the plots are really devious, and together they are absolutely hilarious.’ —BookTrust
‘When crime rears its ugly head, who better than pigeons to have on your side? A goofball farce… this episodic volume offers two other cases for the crime-busting birdies, and young readers will make quick work of them all. Totally coo!” —Kirkus Reviews
Manic energy and flapstick comedy (get it?) ricochet through the chapters…. Dog Man and Inspector Flytrap fans are ideal readers for this perfectly absurd new series.” —Booklist
‘This is such a funny series with plenty of word play, hillarious visuals and graphic dialogue. Fans of Bad GuysInvestigators and the Treehouse series will be instant fans as will those who like quirky humour and rollicking fun.’ —ReadPlus
‘Text and pictures work together seamlessly, with comic sequences, graphic dialogue, funny captions, exuberant visual humour and word play. I can’t wait to witness more of the Real Pigeons’ ingenuity, bravery, teamwork, and general silliness.’ —Readings Books

‘I love that these books are appropriate for quite a large age range. Mr 10 started reading this series when he was six and fell in love with all the characters, so when this one turned up in the mail he grabbed it eagerly.
