The publicity-shy William Fagus lives in a remote location in an upturned fishing smack with a parrot and sundry antique musical instruments and carpentry tools.

The redoubtable Mrs Lush, his cleaning lady and confidant, is his most frequent visitor.

William Fagus’s biography, of uncertain origin and dubious veracity, is available here.

My thoughts:

This is a very fun read, the titular bird finds himself far from home, not that he’s sure where that is, but none of the birds in the park are like him. Thus starts an epic journey to find out who he is and how to return to where he belongs.

There is a lot of feathery dialogue, from the chuggies who take him in to the marties who help him find part of his way home. Luckily the author has included copious footnotes to explain the bird world.

This is a light hearted, clever read that would make a great gift for the reader in your life, even if that’s you!
