Get ready to Squawk ‘n’ Roll!

As Nanny Gigg, Sam and her best friend Ajay set out for a Roaming Scones concert, little do they know that Bruno has zapped their pet budgie, Sindy, with one of their granddad’s crackpot inventions: the ENORMA-GRO 3000! Will they catch the massive bird before she wrecks the gaff? And who’s trying to steal the Scones’ precious gold guitar? A tale of pets, buds and rock ‘n’ roll from Alan Nolan, author and illustrator of Fintan’s FifteenConor’s Caveman and Sam Hannigan’s Woof Week.
