The Day of the Jackdaw

Paperback

Village newcomer Alex must vanquish a vicious feathered foe to finally feel at home in this madcap caper from comedy genius and bestselling author Jo Simmons.

Alex is not happy that his family are moving to the village of Noggings. He’s even less happy when he discovers that Noggings is under siege from Graham, a vicious jackdaw that has been terrorising the locals, dive-bombing kids in the school playground and targeting dog walkers and picnickers. As he tries to settle in to his new home, can Alex find a way to dodge the flapping fiend and learn what’s really behind these angry avian attacks?
