Happy Book Birthday to Meg McLaren and her brand new Picture Book Pigeon P.I.

We detect a new pigeon in town … Pigeon P.I., the eagerly anticipated new picture book from rising star Meg McLaren (Life is Magic, shortlisted for the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize 2017), which hits bookshops today!

Pigeon private investigator Murray just wants to take things easy, but when kind-hearted Vee starts to sing like a canary (after all, she is a canary) he can’t hold out. Murray agrees to find the feather thief who has kidnapped her friends, but his change of heart comes too late: now Vee herself has gone missing.

Can Murray find the mysterious feather thief and save his new friend, or is her goose cooked?

This hilarious crime caper is told through cleverly detailed illustrations, and a text with a splendidly silly splash of noir. A wacky ‘whodunnit’ which will keep readers guessing until the end … will Murray be Pigeon P.I. or Pigeon pie?
