Set in the eternal present day, a Scottish lad, raised in a crumbling castle between the Grampian Mountains and the sea, is caught up in a family drama that launches his search for an elusive, even mythical uncle. That man, the ageless, princely explorer and scientist, Professor Parrot, lives with hundreds of rescued animals from every continent. When the boy manages to locate the Professor, it is only to learn that a dangerous expedition is about to get underway, and he is now part of that improbable odyssey. The mission is nothing less than a journey that – if successful – will liberate animals throughout the world, and just in time. The stakes could not be higher as mass extinctions have been unleashed to the north, west, east and south. From a Never-never land in northern Europe, a place off any known map, to the International Court of Justice in the Hague – the adventure of this motley crew of idealists led by the eccentric, brilliant Professor, is astonishing – both in its humorous and provocative insights about the emotional and intellectual lives of countless animals with huge personalities, as well as being a thoroughly delightful wake-up call to the children in all of us. Adorned by magnificent and original artwork produced expressly for this novel by the deeply lyrical, observant and spiritual artist, Adonna Khare, this is a book that readers everywhere will cherish and most likely place under their pillows for safekeeping.
