Today I am excited to bring you a fab book that has been loved in this house by more than just me, Percy the Pigeon has fast become a favourite bedtime story in this house.  Percy the Pigeon was published by Britain’s Next Bestseller on 19th May 2017 and is available to buy from Amazon now!



** Thanks to David at Britain’s Next Bestseller for our copy of this book **


‘Percy the Pigeon was greedy, he loved to eat and eat. His whole body was round and chubby, from his head right down to his feet.’

Percy the Pigeon is a charming book, suitable for all age ranges and anyone who loves stories with a moral. The younger children and toddlers will enjoy the bright colouring of the pictures and the simple flow of the rhyming pattern. The older children who understand the value of friendship and the importance of sharing will appreciate the classic ideas and traditional storytelling.

For lovers of Julia Donaldson’s and Axel Scheffler’s ‘The Gruffalo’ and ‘Superworm’ and Eric Carle’s ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’, Katie Budge’s debut book will make every bed time a perfect goodnight.

Our Thoughts & Review:

Percy the Pigeon isn’t the nicest of pigeons and as my small bookworm has decided, he’s “mean and naughty”.  He’s a very hungry pigeon that eats anything in sight and doesn’t care what his friends think, he just wants to eat ALL THE FOOD!  But upon realising the error of his ways, he sets out to win back his friends and build bridges.

In a charming tale, young and old readers are equally delighted by the tale that reminds them of the importance of friendship and sharing.  The language used is understandable for young readers, and they can follow the story easily.  Delightful illustrations compliment the rhyming tale perfectly and make this a very enjoyable read.  It’s also a great way to talk about the idea of sharing with smaller children, the notion that Percy and his friends fall out because he doesn’t share is a good conversation starter with youngsters.

This has fast become a much loved book at bedtime, regularly there is a request for Percy’s story and when we see a plump pigeon when we’re out and about my wee one often asks if it might be Percy.

Very highly recommended by me and my small bookworm!
