If you must win the heart of that special girl, (and you must), the only way to do it is with the help of a talking canary. Isn't it?

Hilarious comedy with canary sound effects from the top selling author of the Mr Gum books.

Sterling Thaxton is in love. In love with Lizzie Harris - the beautiful new girl. Her hair is the colour of magic. Her nose is as sweet as music. Her arms are as slender as rainbows. Problem is, she's not interested. Luckily a small yellow canary turns up with some excellent advice! Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers of 8+.
