    From the internationally bestselling author of Beetle Boy and the Adventures on Trains series, comes the first book in The Twitchers, a brand new mystery adventure series celebrating friendship, bravery and the incredible world of birds, starring a birdwatching detective called Twitch!

    Can a birdwatcher outwit an escaped convict?

    Twitch has three pet chickens, four pigeons, swallows nesting in his bedroom and a passion for birdwatching. On the first day of the summer holidays, he arrives at his secret hide to find police everywhere: a convicted robber has broken out of prison and is hiding in Aves Wood. Can Twitch use his talents for birdwatching to hunt for the dangerous prisoner and find the missing loot?

    Praise for Twitch:

    "A winged masterpiece." Maz Evans

    "Enthralling from beginning to end, it really touched my young bird-loving heart! Just wonderful!" Dara McAnulty

    "Birds, mystery and fowl play! What more could you want?" Gill Lewis

    "Glorious! Full of excitement and wonder!" Sophie Anderson

    "A brave and thrilling new adventure from one of my favourite writers. I honestly didn't put the book down until the very last, exciting, page-turn and I'm twitching for the next adventure!" Jasbinder Bilan

    "Twitch is an absolute triumph. The perfect blend of mystery and adventure, a winning hero with an eye for ornithological facts and a heart as big as the countryside, plus a cracking whipsmart plot, I think this is M. G. Leonard's best book yet." Christopher Edge

    "Cracking characters, beyond pacy plotting and an ending that is almost Bugsy Malone-esque!" Phil Earle

    "Twitch is a compelling read - an adventure mystery with birds - what more could any reader want?!" Stephen Moss

    "Adventure, friendship and the pure unassuming beauty of nature ... a book that could have been a collaboration between David Attenborough and Roald Dahl." Dr Jess French

    "A superb adventure of friendship, bravery and the wonderful world of birds, with a strong, but non-preachy theme of the benefits of connection with the natural world." The Bookseller

    "One of those really, really good books ... Recommended for readers around 8 to 12 years old, and grown-ups like me who still enjoy the delight of a great adventure story!" The Bookbag

    Praise for M. G. Leonard:

    "An original voice in children's literature." The Times

    "Truly great storytelling." Michael Mopurgo

    "Superstar." Guardian

    "Wonderful." Sunday Telegraph
