Draw your own pigeon
We challenge you to draw your own pigeon! Make sure you give your pigeon:
- a name
- a pigeon power
Does your pigeon have super-strong eyesight? The ability to know the exact time without looking at their watch? Or even the best sense of smell in the world? You can make up whatever you want!
Win a Real Pigeons book!
Share your drawing on social media with the hashtag #RealPigeonsChallenge to go in the running to win a copy of Real Pigeons Peck Punches. Competition ends Tuesday 12th May at 11.59pm. Winner will be chosen at random and announced on Andrew and Ben’s social media channels. Australia and New Zealand residents only. Good luck pigs!
Try drawing Rock Pigeon
Rock Pigeon is a MASTER OF DISGUISE and the heart of the Real Pigeons squad.
He’s also simple to draw if you follow Ben’s easy guide. Good luck – and don’t forget his pet twig, Trent!
Write a story
Write a story about a bird or an animal that you’ve seen outside lately. Try writing the story from their perspective.
How does the world look to your character?
What can they see, smell, hear, feel?
And what are they doing?
Buy a Real Pigeons book
Real Pigeons books can be bought where all good books are sold.
While it’s a bit tricky to get to the shops at the moment, we recommend checking if your local bookshop is doing delivery, or look at any of the fabulous Australian retailers who sell books online. This week we’ve partnered with Booktopia!
We hope you enjoyed this episode of The Super Coo Club!
Don’t miss episode two next week when we investigate how to write a funny story! It will be live at 12pm (AEST) on Wednesday 13th May.
Oh and if you want to send us a video question of your own – visit the Super Coo Club webpage for all the details.
Until then – high feather five!
– Andrew and Ben
