Description of this Book

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 installment in the Dave Pigeon series from Greenhouse Funny Prize winner Swapna Haddow, brilliantly brought to life with Sheena Dempsey's illustrations.
