Sojourns and Celebrations: Pippa Takes Off

Pippa pigeon has certainly been clocking up her flying hours the last month or so. In case you haven't been able to keep up with her feathered fiascoes, here's a pictorial collage from the first couple of Book Launches for Pippa's self-titled story, PIPPA! Enjoy. 

If you want to meet the real Pippa and her amazing chaperon, aka me, Dimity Powell, please do not ignore your urge to get in touch. We'd both love the chance to visit your school, library, care centre, bookshop or event. Assurance Pledge: Pippa is 100% house-trained and exemplary in confined spaces with small humans.

If you can't be bothered scrolling through these book launch happy snaps, check out the mini-movie below for a few of our best moments. (Photo credits to all and sundry who attended, Maria Parenti-Baldey, and George Ivanoff)

Story time

A flock of enraptured guests getting their pigeon on

Pippa assisting in some serious signing - spread your wings little bird

Leaving the sunny serenity of the Gold Coast ...

...for the freezing arctic blasts and bustle of Melbourne

Where trams clatter and slip along dampened streets

Hurrah! Taking flight in the heart of Ford Street thanks to George's novel and fun way of launching Pippa
