“What was that wonderful sound?” cooed Pigeon

Eight years ago I saw a pigeon with tangled feet, then I noticed a pigeon watching an opera singers busking in Covent Garden’s piazza & an invisible force of pure joy & excitement flowed through me. I began to write. I haven’t stopped! Pigeon was so excited to be snuggling up to his favourite sound, which he likes to call the ‘tra la la la laaaaaa’!

 

BBC Radio London

Is there anything you have done that you never imagined you would do in your life? A year ago, I would have never imagined I would be invited on BBC Radio London. I am so glad that I pushed myself to go on Sky News live as this gave me the confidence to say yes to my invitation on the Jo Good Show. I immediately warmed to Jo Good  as she was full of kind, positive energy and she adored Pigeon. I will always look back on this moment with warmth and joy. It was also a huge honour to meet Margaret from Alligators Mouth. A lovely children’s bookshop worth visiting in Richmond.

 

Author visit to Esher Church School

Wednesday 13th November, Pigeon and I were invited to Esher Church School. We were greeted by a crowd of 180 smiley and curious faced children, at their Year 1, 2 and 3 assembly. For the first time ever my nerves were silent. i do believe that practice is really important. Prepare with perfect pigeon precision before any pigeon performance! Afterwards the children asked some questions like:

How did you come up with the idea?

Why Covent Garden?

I felt really good afterwards. I feel like I can do anything now. I will continue to strive to spread the word about how important it is for children to understand the following messages:

— Always believe in yourself!

— Always be YOU

— Dream big!

— Explore!

— Be brave!

— Look after your local wildlife!

— Look after your planet!

 

 

 

 

Global Climate Change Strike – 2019

So emotional to see so many people fighting for their future across the globe. I am feeling proud to be part of this historical event! The Tap-Dancing Pigeon of Covent Garden is particularly proud to support ‘Plasticspledge’ by Delphi which advocates the end of single use plastic.

 

 

Another lovely review by ofamilylearning.com

When I first heard about the story it was all about how a little pigeon gets affected by plastic rubbish. Although that is the case I actually think that is a lot more to this book. This is a story about a young pigeon who leaves home and discovers his own passion and I loved that aspect of it. I think it is important to encourage young kids to go and find something that they are interested in, even if it is unusual, if you are passionate about it go for it.

A review from a thankful mummy!

What a lovely review from Jane Gow, who also sent a lovely photo of her children reading
‘The Tap-Dancing Pigeon of Covent Garden!

“The Gowling’s absolutely loved it. Alex was so animated with his own story telling… singing and laughing away. Great book and fantastic environmental messaging!”

I recently came across this amazing review on https://www.goodreads.com. It certainly makes all the hard work – blood, sweat and tears – of editing my first book and the creative journey well worth it! Thank you Bibiana!
