ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- Jay lives with his Poppa whilst his ornithologist parents are in the African Rift Valley following important research leads. There's also Clyde, a budgie who isn't as much bird as jigsaw-solving close companion. Jay wants the government to rescue his parents, but it looks like he'll have to do the job himself as no-one is listening. And what people are also not hearing is birdsong - the world's birds are acting very strangely indeed… Throw in security agents, a half-wild galah who has to teach Clyde how to be a real bird, ecological warnings and an array of madcap happenings, and this is vintage Gleitzman indeed! Lindy
