About the book
Pigeon power needed! Pigeons unite! It's time to stop being disrespected by the people around us. We are waging war on discourtesy!
Dr. Coo, a sophisticated, big-city kind of pigeon, rallies the troops and mobilizes them for victory. You see all the pigeons feel that they get no respect as people swat at them with their umbrellas, shoo them from their perches and make them feel like pests, unworthy and unwanted. Other birds are admired and revered but not the pigeons.
In bygone times pigeons were held in very high esteem and worked in harmony with mankind. They once delivered news of the Olympic Games throughout Ancient Greece and medicine to soldiers on battlefields. They were important to humans even called heroes, but alas, no more. Something has to be done to get them in high standing once again. Enough is enough!
Dr. Coo cleverly uses his smarts and hatches a plan to reinstate pigeons back to their rightful place and reclaim the admiration and respect they so deserve.
It will be Pigeon power at it's best... but will it work? Healing and harmony is on it's way thanks to the good doctor... Dr. Who? No silly... Dr. Coo!!!!
