Take a trip through the zoo with this irrepressible pigeon, as she preens and poses alongside all the animals, right up to the sharp teeth of a grumpy lion…

Fantastic satire with deadpan black humour!

Simple written text with superb pencil and watercolour illustrations. The crocodile runway is terrific. If you miss this one you will kick yourself. – Bob’s Book Blog, Jan 2016

 

Shalev’s kicky, scrawled crayon and cut-paper art is sophisticated and energetic … a great example of a book in which the art and text tell opposing stories at the same time, this would be a natural pick for fans of Mo Willems’ own famous pigeon. – Booklist, US

 

This “pride goeth before a fall” story will provide many laughs and plenty to talk about. School Literary Journal, February 2016
