Pigeon is extremely busy doing important things. Rushing here, rushing there. He has no time to stop, and he definitely doesn't have time to get lost.
Luckily Mouse is on hand to help. Mouse is not busy. Mouse is not busy at all. Mouse has all the time in the world to admire and appreciate the world around him.
As this unlikely duo pair up to help Pigeon find his way home, Mouse wonders if he might be able persuade Pigeon to stop and look at the world around him too…
A witty and exquisitely illustrated new picture book about appreciating the little things in life from award-winning illustrator and creator of Mini Rabbit, John Bond.

Praise for Mini Rabbit Not Lost by John Bond:

“Mixes silliness with a Jon Klassen-like note of piquant peril . . . and an unexpected final twist make(s) for great appeal.” The Guardian

‘John Bond brilliantly captures the single-mindedness of small children…little readers will certainly want seconds.’
The Observer

“Adorable . . . a really sweet story with absolutely stunning illustrations” BookTrust

Praise for Mini Rabbit Must Help by John Bond:

“Lively colourful illustrations . . . A Charming and witty book” BookTrust

Praise for Dogs in Disguise by Peter Bently and John Bond

‘A rambunctious rhyming picture-book romp ideal for fans of the “Oi!” books, full of ingenious pooches and some truly outrageous rhymes (think schnauzers in trousers and shih-tzus doing ju-jitsu). Bond’s trademark wide, staring eyes and bright block colours perfectly complement Bently’s bouncing text.’ Guardian
