    1. Midwest Book Review

      As the story unwinds, tracing attitudes and mistaken perceptions of fame, kids and adults alike will laugh out loud at the increasingly obvious reasons why true fame might be a state of mind, here, in a fun exploration of the elements of fame and some of the possibilities of attitude.

    2. Janet Croft Book Reviews (NZ), 4 starred review

      The story is simple, the illustrations are amazing, and this is a book which I could readily read and reread with young children of 3–7 years. There is considerable humour in it all, and the ending is definitely on to talk about. One of my best books for this month!

    3. Booklist

      This comical tale will be great to read aloud, as kids will quickly decipher what’s really going on behind the pigeon’s narcissistic narrative.

    4. The Children’s Bookshop (NZ)

      This hilarious, layered story, perfectly complemented by tongue-in-cheek illustrations, is full of dead-pan black humour that will appeal to everyone.

    5. Booksellers New Zealand

      This book is a subtle gem, with very effective illustrations … I am very happy that Gecko Press has brought yet another fantastic international children’s author to our attention. I look forward to seeing more from Israeli author/illustrator, Michal Shalev.
