From the Costa award-winning author of Harvey Angell comes the perfect book for fathers and sons to share – and for anyone who has ever been part of a crazy but loveable family.
Oliver Coggin lives with his chaotic family in Dizzy Perch, a crazy house on top of a mountain somewhere remote in Scotland. With Pa away – on mysterious but exciting scientific research – Oliver keeps the household going. Not that everyone always listens to what he has to say. Or appreciates him. But what does Oliver want himself? He’d like to escape the house sometimes. He’d like a friend, like the new boy he sees in the village. Most of all, he’d like to understand why his father went away. And where’s he’s gone. So Oliver sets out on a long journey to get Pa back.
