Kristyna Litten: Just Published: Pigeon Pie, Oh My!

Illustrated by Kristyna Litten, Pigeon Pie, Oh My!  is a great cause-and-effect story with lots of visual clues throughout the narrative and teaches the reader that even if you're little, you can make yourself count.

Down on Budd Farm, the naughty goat causes havoc, and eats the scarecrow’s clothes, leaving the pigeons to steal the corn in the farmers field but the other farmyard animals have a clever plan to save the crop. This fun picture book about working together, written by Debbie Singleton, is published by Oxford University Press this month.

Kristyna has brought life and humour to the farmyard characters, giving this story warmth and style with her limited colour palette and attention to detail.
