Product description

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!

Our favourite pompous pigeon is BACK! And about to trade places with a pigeon prince, descended from Indian royalty.

Dave Pigeon and his best friend Skipper are taking in the sights of London. Whilst pecking around the gates of the Royal Palace, looking for high-brow snacks to feast on, they meet Prince Raju Pigeon, one of the Queen’s personal birds from the Royal Lofts.

Raju is tired of royal life and longs to see life beyond the palace gates. Dave suggests they swap places for a short while! Raju will get to see how normal pigeon lives and Dave will be pampered in the Royal Lofts.

Of course, this all goes to Dave’s head and as he laps up the royal treatment becoming more unbearable than ever. But life in high society is not all it’s cracked up to be . . .

A very feathery prince and the pauper story, rich in diversity, packed full of gorgeous illustrations and giggle-until-you-wee jokes, perfect for emerging readers.

    Brilliantly hilarious books

    Our school librarian pointed me in the direction of the Dave Pigeon books and I passed them on to my Year 3 class. We read the first one as a group and they were all instantly hooked. One of our most reluctant readers has now read all four and is wanting more! Very funny characters, great stories and great illustrations.
