"A truly riveting book that I couldn't put down, the words painted such vivid pictures of the characters, both human, machine and animals and I was gripped from the first page to the last, I can't wait to read it with my grandson."
Hayley , West Midlands, Uk
“If ever a definitive word was needed to describe this book, then it's 'delightful'! Delightful from beginning to end. A tale aimed at children,(but which adults will enjoy too) exudes charm from the word go which, in its own very clever way, touches on relevant themes of family, belonging, loyalty & friendship. Surely the building blocks of the transition from childhood to adulthood. I defy anyone not to be taken in by this tale full of our wonderful, feathered friends!”

"It's the first time that he finished a book in less than 3 days. I asked him if he enjoyed the book and he said that it's such a great adventure that he's going to read it again! I'll probably read it myself too!"
Christine, London, UK
"The author does an amazing job of setting the scenes and describing the characters so that you can really visualize what's happening in the story. Even though this book is geared toward 9 to 12-year-old children, it was a great read for me as well. I eagerly await any future books from this author!"
Paula, Florida, USA
"I bought this for my Grandson. I'm absolutely delighted I read it too. A wonderful story with kindness, friendships and adventures in every chapter. I will enjoy reading this again. I would recommend this to readers of all ages. I would love to see this on TV. Loved it, loved it, loved it..."
