Pigeon loved being in the company of Lotus Classics as they played a variety of soulful tunes both modern and old classics. The crowds flocked to listen and watch from the railings above. For a moment in time as thought time had stood still, it was silent and all you could hear was the beautiful soft sounds of the individual instruments.
Enjoying some positive Wednesday vibes by sharing this book review about The Tap-Dancing Pigeon Of Covent Garden on Foyles bookshop online.
Pigeon and I enjoyed visiting Playmates Nursery in Chessington to kick off our local author readings. The children seemed in awe of Pigeon’s adventure across London and nearly all of them went home with their special signed copy of The Tap-Dancing Pigeon Of Covent Garden. It was a great start to 2020!
On Monday 11th November, Pigeon and I were invited to Little Sparrows nursery to read to three sets of ten children in their reading room. It was a really lovely time, Pigeon was a little shy to start off with and would not come out of his bag! The children were aged 2 to 4 years old, which I believe can be tricky age because of their attention span. It was a lovely experience!
Pigeon and I are taking bookings for 2020! Hurry as we only have a few slots left for ‘World Book Day’ week! Alternatively, if you have a day to understand what is going on in our environment, Pigeon and I would be happy to come and read ‘The Tap-Dancing Pigeon Of Covent Garden’ in your school.

On 29th October 2019, Pigeon and I had a book reading event at Esher library in Esher, Surrey. It was wonderful to be reading The Tap-Dancing Pigeon Of Covent Garden to local people so close to our home. The children were amazed that Pigeon could actually coo and they were given the opportunity to cuddle him afterwards. It was so sweet! I love watching their facial expressions when I am telling the story because my book is such a rollercoaster of emotions and drama!
On 19th October 2019, I was given the opportunity to read my book at the store! At 3pm, crowds of little inquisitive people spilled into Waterstones and waited in anticipation to hear Pigeon’s story. Seven years ago, I was working in Covent Garden and used to spend my lunch breaks in this bookshop. So as you can imagine this was truly a dream come true to be able to read my published book in this store. It is so important to focus on your passion and really strive to achieve your aspirations because their are so many amazing benefits from creating and making your dreams come true.
Pigeon and I had a fantastic book event at Toddlestop. This time on a Thursday. There were more children than the last event. So that was a good experience. We created pigeon puppets with googley eyes and feathers and sold quite a few books! Signing books is a great honour!
