Danny longs for adventure or just a super-cool summer holiday, for once but every year 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 of porridge, and the only person to hang out with is science-mad Susie, who is more interested in watching programmes about tapeworms than finding fun!
But when Danny hears about a shipwreck just off the coast, his adventure really begins and when he discovers a dodo (of all things!), Danny certainly gets more than he bargains for! Trying to keep the dodo fed, safe and quiet is a mammoth task and Danny 's lies and excuses are soon spinning out of control. Why had he ever wished for something more exciting to happen'
A hilarious tale of wish fulfilment gone wrong that every child will relate to perfect for fans of Pamela Butchart, My Brother is a Superhero and David Baddiel 's The Parent Agency.
