Description of this Book

Have you ever sat in a shoebox? Of course you have. But have you ever sat in one when your best friend Dave has spread his feathery self out so wide that his cheesy feet are right up your beak and there also happens to be an old banana in the corner taking up the rest of the space? I didn't think so. This is where our story begins...Dave Pigeon and his best friend Skipper were living happily in the Human Lady's house, but now they're travelling in a box to Pawsville Vets ...maybe Dave will finally get his broken wing fixed. The pet shop is full of new friends...Jet the dog, Cricket Ball Face the hamster...and with friendship comes a bit of healthy competition, and what could be better that a race for a racing pigeon? But the only animal who thinks Dave is capable of going up against the infamous Mickey Lightning is Dave himself. The third installment to this laugh-out-loud new series is fully illustrated throughout by the incredible Sheena Dempsey.

Author's Bio

Swapna Haddow lives in London with her karate-chopping, swash-buckling son (his words not hers), her thirty-something, age-sensitive husband and Gary the hamster. She spends her time writing, eating cake and making sure her son doesn't flatten her husband as he attempts to master his human cannonball trick. 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.
