About The Book
Danny longs for adventure - or just a supercool summer holiday, for once - but everyyear he is shipped off to the quiet village of Kinoussie in Scotland to stay with his gran.
Nothing ever ever happens in Kinoussie - except his gran makes him eat a lot ofporridge, and the only person to hang out with is science-mad Susie, who is moreinterested in watching programmes about tapeworms than finding fun!
But when Danny hears about a shipwreck just off the coast, his adventure really beginsand when he discovers a dodo (of all things!), Danny certainly gets more than hebargains for! Trying to keep the dodo fed, safe and quiet is a mammoth task andDanny's lies and excuses are soon spinning out of control. Why had he ever wished forsomething more exciting to happen?
A hilarious tale of wish fulfilment gone wrong that every child will relate to - perfect forfans of Pamela Butchart, My Brother Is a Superhero and David Baddiel's The ParentAgency.
