Pippa is a little pigeon with big blue-sky ambitions: to fly solo and
explore the world beyond her nest. Her parents are less than thrilled
with their risk-taking feathered fledgling and smother her with
well-meant yet suffocating warnings until one day she ignores them all
and takes the leap into the unknown…alone.
But how will she survive in this new uncharted territory with all its
treacherous dangers and make it back home in time for tea? Join Pippa
on her incredible adventure as she discovers home is where the heart is.
Pippais a light-hearted adventure tale about striking out
alone, following your dreams and desires and experiencing what it’s like
when you get there. It is a tale that acknowledges the
sometimes-suffocating affection parents have for their offspring, which
can temper and frustrate a child’s sense of freedom and adventure, and
suggests that it’s okay to take risks from time to time. Although the
adventure may be perilous, it is still worth experiencing for you never
know what glorious discoveries lie in ahead.
Pippa is small, determined, stubborn, and wilful, just like many
other six-year-olds. And, like many youngsters who’ve wanted more than
they can handle, when she finally does return to her flock, she realises
that when it comes to true security and contentment, it’s family that
striking pictures ably capture all the joie de vivre and drama of
Pippa’s solo flight, beautifully accentuating the sometimes
misunderstood personality and unique traits of the homing pigeon. For
