The Pigeon Spy
Publisher: A&C Black
France 1918 and the war is in full swing. Two hundred US soldiers are trapped in a wood behind enemy lines. German snipers are firing at them and their own side is dropping bombs on them. They need to get a message out before it's too late. A homing pigeon is their only hope!
Terry Deary retells the true story of the heroic pigeon Cher Ami and his 16 year-old handler Joe in an easily accessible format.
