Alastair is a brilliant parrot who loves poetry and is fiercely protective of his big-hearted sister, Aggie. He yearns to break them out of the pet store they've always known. But when he is separated from Aggie and his wild dreams for the future lie in ruins, will he ever see Aggie again? And will he ever learn to trust the people around him?

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.
