      REAL PIGEONS LIVE MYSTERY: with Andrew McDonald & Ben Wood

      The Little Bookroom is excited to host REAL PIGEONS creators ANDREW MCDONALD and BEN WOOD to celebrate the release of the REAL PIGEONS NEST HARD, the third adventure of these fowl crime fighters. Join us as a completely original LIVE MYSTERY unfolds for young ornithological crime enthusiasts who will take part in the thrill of the chase and help contribute to putting a stop to the baddies.  This mystery is ideal for 6-10 year-olds and will run for approximately one hour with time for book signing at the end. Each ticket includes a copy of REAL PIGEONS NEST HARD. ABOUT THE BOOK Ever wonder why pigeons always act so weird? It’s because they’re out there chasing the bad guys and saving your butts! In this hot new series for fans of Bad Guys and Dog Man, the crime-fighting birds known as the REAL PIGEONS have some mega mysteries to solve. Someone has been stealing from a vulture. A beastly child is lost in the park. And Homey’s long-lost family have been bird-napped! But how can you fight crime when you don’t have the perfect nest??
