Staff Reviews


Pigeons— they’re everywhere, all over town, all the time. But is it an infestation… or an undercover operation?! In this book, our heroes are masters of disguise, agents of stealth, protectors of the city! They’re… well, they’re pigeons. And they’ll stop at nothing until they answer the big questions, starting with where all the delicious bread crumbs have gone…

— Melanie

Praise For…


A goofball farce… this episodic volume offers two other cases for the crime-busting birdies, and young readers will make quick work of them all. Totally coo!” —Kirkus Reviews

Manic energy and flapstick comedy (get it?) ricochet through the chapters…. Dog Man and Inspector Flytrap fans are ideal readers for this perfectly absurd new series.” —Booklist
