“Exciting and energetic, readers will fly through Real Pigeons Splash Back by Andrew McDonald and Ben Wood, the fourth instalment in this uproarious, brilliantly silly ride of a series that will prove irresistible to reluctant readers.”
With master of disguise Rock Pigeon, bendy Tumbler, strong Frillback and super-finder Homey, the REAL PIGEONS will solve any mystery and fight any bad guy to keep the city safe!
The Real Pigeons series is a hilariously silly and highly visual introduction to the joys of reading and crime-fighting for readers 6+.
“Perfect for emerging readers who want action, hilarious hijinks, and crime-fighting mysteries. This is the first in a series and is sure to earn fans ready for more adventures from these plucky pigeons.”
“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.”
“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!”
“Fast-paced and inventive, this is a fun and silly book, perfect for the early primary school reader”
“A perfect match of hilarious storytelling and fabulous illustrations that kids will love.”
But still, grim-reaping is a chore for Sod. Every day after school he's expected to guide souls into the afterlife. And it's really going to get in the way of playing guitar with his band. But when he starts neglecting his grim-reaping duties things go awry in the universe. It's up to Sod, and his new goth friend, Graveyard Girl, to work out how to put things right again.
“'hugely entertaining' and a 'funny, tender and inventive story'”
“A full-steam-ahead story, it combines rock n’ roll with ghoulish shenanigans, a hefty dose of gross-out gore...and some real tragedy with an ending you simply will not have seen coming.”
“Highly recommended for 10-13-year-olds who like zombies, laughs and a mystery to solve.”
“A dark and comic mystery: a plot full of intrigue, and a killer ending.”
