The president has some VERY important documents to sign at Dublin Castle, but without his glasses, how will he do it?
Luckily, the presidential pigeon knows exactly what’s happened and follows the presidential car to Dublin Castle, taking in a bird’s eye view of the city on his way.
But the pigeon gets stuck in traffic on O’Connell Street ... meets some tourists taking selfies ... and even beats a Viking ship in a boat race!
Will he ever catch up with the president to deliver his glasses in time?
’A charming, witty and stylish book about a forgetful president and his ever ready pigeon’ Primary Times
Peter Donnelly was born in Dublin, a city with no shortage of pigeons. When he was a boy he shook a president’s hand, not this particular president but a real president nevertheless. He would like to shake this president’s hand though -- if he ever meets him.
Peter has one daughter and still lives and works in Dublin. He draws pictures for a living and has won some nice awards. He has recently begun wearing glasses – which he also leaves at home sometimes.
The President’s Glasses was a number one bestseller and shortlisted for an Irish Book Award. Peter is currently working on a new book, The President’s Cat.
