Dave Pigeon (Nuggets!) Summary

Dave Pigeon (Nuggets!) by Swapna Haddow

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! This book is in Pigeonese. The following words are a test: cats smell of farts and cabbage. Could you read all the words? Are you sure? Do you want to try that fourth word again? If you managed to read ALL those words, you may turn the page . . . Dave Pigeon is BACK! And so is his side-kick Skipper. But trouble is afoot. When their Human Lady leaves to go on a 'holiday' (whatever that is), Dave and Skipper are horrified to find that their food supply quickly runs dry. With delicious biscuits on their minds, they set off in search of a new owner - but is Reginald Grimster all he seems? Why is he so keen on feeding them? And why does he have so many books about cooking . . .? Another hilarious instalment in the Dave Pigeon series from Greenhouse Funny Prize winner Swapna Haddow, brilliantly brought to life with Sheena Dempsey's illustrations. 'A hilarious new series.' Angels and Urchins 'A really enjoyable read for children just moving into chapter books.' Books for Keeps 'Readers will love this action packed story about friendship, bravery and the lengths a pigeon will go to to secure themselves a crumbly treat.' Reading Zone 'I can't imagine any child not loving Dave and waiting excitedly for his next adventure.' Serendipity Reviews 'Readers will love it as it is full of daring and bravery, and much backfiring of ridiculous schemes and much crossing out.' The School Librarian

Sheena Dempsey is a children's author and illustrator. She loves to draw animals, from dirty rats to mean cats and heroic pigeons too. She has worked with various publishers in Ireland and the UK including Walker, Templar, Hachette, Faber and Little Island. She lives in London with her partner, Mick, and their greyhound, Sandy.
