The world of Jack Pigon (2 vol Series, more titles to come) << Back

Giacomo Pigòn, called Jack, is a nice detective pigeon full of courage and initiative. Jack is an explorer, an excellent cook and a former player - now a coach - of football, the national sport of Volandia, the city of birds. Jack is curious, loves to travel and be with friends, he only reads the books recommended by his best friend Sardinus and is in love with Clara, a beautiful pink flamingo that he cannot conquer. Jack has also a human friend: a little girl named Maribel who has the special gift of speaking the language of birds.

In each adventure, Jack faces a different mission, often finding himself facing the terrible Scorpion, the most powerful man in the world, always struggling with his evil plans to get rich at the expense of the birds.


The magic book of Volandia

Jack Pigòn is bored, it is been too long since he’s had an interesting job and he’s thirsty for adventure. One morning, finally, there is a knock at the door and within just a few minutes he has received three assignments: the principal of Volandia High has asked him to coach the air-soccer team, his best friend Sardinus has enrolled him in a cooking contest without telling him, and the head of the police force, Mitraglia, asks for his help in finding the Magical Book of Volandia which has mysteriously disappeared. Three assignments are a lot, maybe even too much for such a short period of time, but for Jack this is a good chance to have some amazing adventures with his friends. 


Volandia is in the dark: the old coal-burning electrical station does not work anymore! Jack Pigòn is hired to find a solution. Helping him this time will be his pecking partner, Sardinus, who is currently hosting Jack at his house.
Sardinus is an enthusiastic reader and an expert in history and geography. He knows a lot about energy and how it is extracted from the earth. With his help, Jack will travel to the highest mountains in Volandia and to the lowest points underground, with his bat-friends, through channels for hot water, between geysers and dormant volcanoes. 


Volandia (Fly Land) is a small island in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, situated in a place that human radars can't identify. There is a mayor, a school, a police district and two football teams always in contention with each other.

Rattonia (Rat Land) is the island of rats and is located near Volandia. Rattonia has been in crisis for years: there is no work and no food, so it often enters in conflict with Volandia.



Jack's sworn enemy, he is the richest and most powerful man in the world. He uses the help of the rats to carry out his evil plans.


He is Jack's best friend. Passionate about books, he knows geography and history from all over the world.


Jack's young nephew, he's always ready to join his uncle's missions!

Guercio (One-eyed)

He is Pigòn's rat friend. He lives as a criminal, but is good-hearted and often helps Jack in his research. 


The splendid pink flamingo that Jack Pigòn is (not even so secretly) in love with.


A very special little girl who, unlike other humans, has the gift of talking to birds, seeing their world and seeing their appearance.
