Description

"Well, I didn't ask to be a pigeon! . . . I wanted to be an eagle, didn't I? . . . Why couldn't we have been eagles instead of pigeons? What a life! Nothing but cooo, cooo and peck, peck, all the time."
". . . This is the High Street not the Highlands! We're no here to cause a sensation, and . . . if it weren't for your stupidity, we wouldn't be here in the first place!"
Stroppy pigeons in Edinburgh's Old Town. It's not a normal part of daily life -- but things are never going to be the same again.
Clara and Neil have always known the MacArthurs, the little people who live under Arthur's Seat, in Holyrood Park, but they are not quite prepared for what else is living under the hill. Feuding faery lords, missing whisky, magic carpets, firestones and ancient spells . . . where will it end? And how did it all start?
Set against the backdrop of the Edinburgh Fringe and Military Tattoo this is a fast-paced comic adventure, full of magic, mayhem and mystery -- and a dragon.

Review quote

'For a debut novel, this is brilliant... The pace is fast moving, very readable and at times very funny... A well deserved addition to any school collection.'
--Janette Perkins, School Librarian Journal,
'... a diverting read which, refreshingly, mocks the convention it's written in. Anne Forbes has a vivid imagination which she has put to good use.'
-- Carousel, The Guide To Children's Books
