Summary: Rock Pigeon lives on a farm, where he loves disguising himself as various plants and animals. One day an old pigeon named Grandpouter comes for a visit. Turns out he’s starting a squad of crime-fighting pigeons and is looking for a master of disguise. Rock’s not sure he wants to go live in the city, but Grandpouter convinces him to try it out for one case. In the city, Rock meets the rest of the squad, and they get to work solving the mystery of why all the breadcrumbs have disappeared from the local park. Cracking that case convinces Rock that he belongs with the Real Pigeons, and the squad successfully solves two more mysteries by the end of the book. Includes a page of facts about real-life pigeons and a promotion for the next two books in the series. 202 pages; grades 2-5.
Cons: I had a bit of trouble keeping the different pigeons straight. Guess I prefer the different species featured in The Bad Guys.
