Product description

How can your dreams fly free when you’re a bird trapped in a cage? A quirky, unique, sad/funny story. Born in the back of a pet shop, Alastair the grey parrot dreams of escape. But being sold isn’t what he meant! One day, he’s bought by an elderly widow – and even worse, his sister Aggie is adopted by a boy who lives miles away. Will Alastair ever find Aggie again? Will they ever fly free? Right now, Alastair’s anxiously plucking his feathers out, trying to think of a plan. But maybe all isn’t lost yet. A fierce parrot. A spirited old lady. A big-hearted boy. Together, can they all learn to live fully-fledged lives?

  • A soaring, heartfelt debut novel of love and breaking free
  • A tale of escaping from the cages we build for ourselves
  • This tear-jerker has ‘modern classic’ written all over it
  • Perfect for fans of Charlotte’s Web and The Last Wild
