Brilliant. I'm fond of bird pun books. Pigeon private investigator tries to find missing birds. The big reveal page for the culprit is amazing. Clever, nice illustrations, well worth reading.

When it comes to picture books, I always, always have to talk about the complexity of them. They are hard beasts to get right, they are even harder beasts to do well. Pigeon P.I is something quite oddly wonderful, a sort of mashup of gumshoe detective drama with a lot of bird puns and something q...

This is a cute book about a Pigeon named Murray who runs a detective agency. The text reads like a classic detective book/movie - I could almost hear Humphrey Bogart's voice as I read the book the first time. There are puns and stereotypes (like when the police birds all are eating donuts at the...

Like another reviewer, I could hear the voice of Sam Spade as I read, but that's not what will attract young readers. Trying to figure out the mystery will! Lots of details in the variety of images, and activities in the endpapers will keep youngsters rereading.
Be sure to look under the dust jack...

A little all over the place, so definitely better for one-on-one or small groups instead of a storytime or whole class. A good choice for elementary aged kids into detectives and crime solving, but I'd skip it for younger kids.
I also need the "cops like donuts" stereotype to die, but that's a bat...

What a hoot! I love the characterization and witty use of puns throughout this picture book. There is always more to discover in the illustrations, and readers will love the twist at the end. Absolute delight!

The illustrations were appealing and bright and expressive, but the story made very quick jumps and I felt like it skipped parts that would have been more fun like hunting for clues. The cops and the big case were really funny though!
