While reading the book, what were your emotions?
I was laughing because the concept is so dumb and amazing at the same time! The book was so creative about how the pigeons solved the mysteries and who was responsible.
Do you think the book had a moral? If so, what was it?
I think one of the morals was “whatever goes around comes around” because all of the bad guys were caught and had to face consequences. I also felt that the book was mostly just for fun and didn’t have a strong moral.
Star Rating
Selected Value: 8 (0 min / 10 max)
Why did you give the book this rating?
I liked how creative it was and how the writers presented the story. The characters were amazing (especially Homey) and overall it was an amazing book.
What was your favorite/least favorite part?
My favorite part was when Rock Pigeon dressed up as a bat as bait. He was in cage with arrows pointing towards him that said things like “Definitely not a pigeon!”, “Untrapped bat!” when the door was open, “Easy to Kidnap!”, “In a cage without a secret escape hatch”.
Would you recommend this book to others? Why?
Yes, I would definitely recommend this book to others, especially people from the ages of 8-12. It was very funny and I bet most people like me would like it, too.
