A madcap new adventure for readers aged 5+

Newly independent readers will laugh out loud at this hilarious story by comedy genius Jo Simmons

Jo Simmons has authored some of our all-time favourite funny books for kids and she's back again with another brilliantly madcap adventure, perfect for newly independent and reluctant readers. Published by dyslexiaa-friendly publisher Barrington Stoke, the book is accessible to all readers and perfect for fans of Tom Gates or The World of Norm.


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?

Jo Simmons is the author of several hilarious books for young readers including Lollies Book Awards-shortlisted I Swapped My Brother on the Internet, My Parents Cancelled My Birthday, and I Stole My Genius Sister’s Brain.
