How to be Famous

How to be Famous
By Michal Shalev
Gecko Press, $20 Pb/$30 Hb
There is a laugh on every page as a self-centred pigeon teaches us how to be famous. The illustrations are marvellously loose, with scribbles of crayon and pencil over washes of colour, conveying the impulsive enthusiasm of our pigeon and the speed of his rollicking tale as he lurches from one potential disaster to the next. Read aloud to all ages.
