S5E4 - Spaceboy and Real Pigeons
The Week Junior Book Awards Special 4
This is the last in our specials reviewing the books on The Week Junior Book Awards shortlist for Audiobook of the Year 2023.
Spaceboy by David Walliams as narrated by Akiya Henry, Reginald D. Hunter, Eric Meyers, Penelope Rawlins, Liza Ross, David Walliams
America. The 1960s.
Stuck on a remote farm with her awful aunt, twelve-year-old orphan Ruth spends every night gazing at the stars, dreaming of adventure.
One night she spots a flying saucer blazing across the sky…before crash-landing in a field. When the spaceship opens and reveals a mysterious alien, all Ruth’s dreams come true.
But does this visitor from another planet have a giant secret?
We also discuss Real Pigeons: Audio Books 1 to 3 by Andrew McDonald and Ben Alexander, as narrated by Tom Alexander.
Ever wonder why pigeons always act so weird? It’s because they’re out there chasing the bad guys and saving your butts!
Did you know your city is protected by a secret squad of crime-fighting pigeons? It's true! With master of disguise Rock Pigeon, bendy Tumbler, strong Frillback and super-finder Homey, the REAL PIGEONS will solve any mystery and fight any bad guy to keep the city safe!
So what do Real Pigeons do? They EAT DANGER, of course! This squad of crime-fighting feathered friends is nonstop action and nonstop laughs. In their second silly adventure watch as they infiltrate a secret warehouse full of bottled birds and take down a truly criminal ostrich. The DANGER is REAL. And so are the PIGEONS.
