Twitch is a boy with a passion for all things birding but, when he finds his hide surrounded by police and discovers that an escaped robber is hiding in the woods, he’s thrust into the midst of adventure. Twitch must turn detective, using his birdwatching skills to find the dangerous convict and his ill-gotten gains.
A fab tale of friendship and nature for independent/confident readers. My nephew enjoyed it so much he read it twice!
