Mister Cassowary by Samantha Wheeler
Synopsis: ‘Cassowaries are not just birds,’ Dad growled. ‘They’re the most dangerous birds in the world.’
When Flynn and Dad arrive at Grandad Barney’s banana farm, it’s clear that Flynn has a lot of investigating to do. Everything in the place is a mystery, especially his grandad who died almost a year ago, and the strange dinosaur-like birds called cassowaries that make his dad so scared.
Why won’t Dad tell Flynn what happened?
After Flynn meets local girl Abby and discovers two orphaned baby cassowaries, the mystery deepens.
Can Flynn find out the truth about his grandad and the cassowaries before it’s too late?
