Originally written and illustrated by Enid Marx in 1943, this book tells the tale of Coo-Coo a brave pigeon called to serve during the war as a homing pigeon with his new wife Flutter-flutter. Coo-Coo tackles sharply clawed cats and an immense hawk, before being baffled by giant deafening aeroplanes and fish-like barrage balloons at pigeon training. He then travels to Africa and meets foreign bird-cousins and monkeys crossing the desert, until one day, when without warning, he is stuck in the heart of the fighting and forced to make the perilous journey back.
