Editors Note Lying in front of Harrison Opuku is a body, the body of one of his classmates, a boy known for his crazy basketball skills who seems to have been murdered for his dinner. Harri is called into action. Armed with a pair of camouflage binoculaurs and detective techniques  absorbed from television shows like CSI, Harri and his best friend Dean plot to bring the perpetrator to justice. They gather evidence—fingerprints lifted from windows with sellotape, a wallet stained with blood—and lay traps to flush out the murderer. But nothing can prepare them for what happens when a criminal feels you closing in on him. Recently emigrated from Ghana with his sister and mother to London's enormous housing projects, Harri is pure curiosity and ebullience-- obsessed with gummy candy, a friend to the pigeon who visits his balcony, quite possibly the fastest runner in his school, and clearly also fast on the trail of a murderer. Told in the infectious voice and multicultural slang of a boy in love with life and language and speed and curious about everything he encounters, Pigeon English follows the great tradition of Huck Finn and Paddy Clarke, as Harri finds adventure, mystery, and danger in his new, ever-expanding world.
