The Bird Caper

By Victoria E. Pannell, Thorir Sigfusson

Buy on Amazon

'A fast-paced, smartly plotted drama filled with twists, turns – and lots of humour. Highly recommended!'

If you happen to be looking for a fun-filled family drama for a 9 – 12 year old, I'd highly recommend The Bird Caper. Accessibly written and packed full of twists and turns, it's the story of a young boy, Brandon, who suddenly discovers he's going to be moving house! From there on, his problems get bigger and bigger – his best pal isn't talking to him and his bird, Ralph, is accused of stealing!
There were so many elements to this story I enjoyed. Firstly, Brandon is a FAB character; the sort of boy young readers will relate to and understand. Secondly, everything he's going through in the story, kids go through all over the world – change. But it's not often as scary as it seems. This is an excellent message for young readers. And, thirdly, the writing style (and the vocabulary) is perfect for middle grade readers – there's even a little humour in there too, which kids always love!
So if you happen to be on the hunt for a cleverly plotted drama for a 9 – 12 year olds, I'd happily recommend The Bird Caper. There's plenty happening all of the time, and I think kids will enjoy rooting for Brandon (and his bird). All in all, an excellent read!
