Seeking desperate advice and support from some other animals along his way, they were of no help to him because they also did not know how to tell direction. Eventually po This book portrays a very simple yet thought provoking message, and that is that we as learners all have a different way of learning. Eventually poor Hank arrived back at school ''almost two hours late'', he felt humiliated and defeated because every other pigeon seemed to have found their way back easily. The teacher reassured Hank that he is capable of achieving great things. She explained to Hank all of his strengths and that all he had to do was to work hard on his weakness and he was sure to succeed.
This story highlights how everyone learns differently. Hank is a pigeon who has dyslexia but it is clear that he has several other strengths besides having a sense of direction. He is very intelligent but intelligence does not come easily to everyone. It is something that we all have to progressively work hard on. This story can teach a child that although they have a learning difficulty, that with hard work and determination, anything is possible. Ultimately, when something is hard and we get angry or frustrated about it, we have to remember that things can only be made possible if we try, and keep trying.
Hank's overcoming of failure in this story proves this.

There are some questions at the end of this book that relate to the story. Openly talking about these difficulties that children may have, is a very good way of allowing a child to be comfortable with their own learning style, and to understand that everyone learns in a different way. It is suitable for children in both KS1 and KS2. Jan 19, Jade West rated it it was amazing.
In the story, we meet a pigeon on his first day of flight school. However, the exciting day turns disappointing when the protagonist pigeon fails to grasp all of the lessons as quickly as his classmates. He ends up failing a portion of his final test, but thanks to an encouraging and patient teacher, the pigeon is able to learn everything he needs to know to quickly rise to the top of his class.
Throughout life, and especially grade school, everyone is bound to come across a subject that is difficult to grasp. And having been previously exposed to the temporary struggles of the Higgledy-Piggledy Pigeon can be the difference in a child giving up on the difficult subject or persevering and succeeding at every task that comes his or her way.
This is a must-read for all children who are about to enter school. Jan 28, Casey Stewart rated it really liked it. This was a wonderful children's book. It teaches children that even though you might have an obstacle to not let it discourage you, or get in the way of what you are wanting.
The book was written in a poetic form which was also more appealing to younger children.

Hank had become a tad bit discouraged when he realized he was behind his classmates but he did not give up. Hank gets some extra help from some of the other characters he encounters in the story.
