A funny, heart-shattering novel about a fierce parrot,
a big-hearted boy and a spirited elderly widow, all learning
to live fully-fledged lives.

Born in the back of a pet store, Alastair the African grey parrot
dreams of escape, to fly off with his beloved sister, Aggie. But
when Aggie is purchased by 12-year-old Fritz, and Alastair is adopted
by Mrs Albertina Plopky, Alastair's hopeful vision for the
future crash-lands.
In-between anxiously plucking his feathers, chewing a few books,
and finding his own poetic voice, Alastair plots his way to Aggie
and their flight to freedom.
This debut novel is a heart-felt, bird's-eye view of love and
what it means to break free from the cages we build for ourselves-
and the courage it may take to finally let go.
