A touching tale of friendship for 5+

Younger readers will love this gentle illustrated story by Children's Laureate Joseph Coelho.

This is a beautiful, moving story by one of the finest children's authors working today. It's packed with empathy and gorgeous illustrations - we loved it!


Mr Buxton always seems to be cross, and he shouts at Miles and his friends for climbing the trees outside their tower block.

But when Miles finds a lost little budgie, he discovers that he and Mr Buxton have more in common than they could ever have imagined.

Joseph Coelho is a playwright, poet, award-winning children’s author and the Waterstones Children’s Laureate for 2022-2024.
