Sleeping with the Blackbirds

11-year-old schoolboy Roy Nuttersley has been dealt a raw deal. His parents show him little in the way of love and affection, and to make matters worse he is plagued by school bullies lead by the thoroughly unpleasant Harry Hodges. So for solace, Roy cares for the birds in his suburban garden, and in return the birds hatch a series of cunning plans to help their new friend. But like so many things in life, these go horribly wrong and the lives of both Roy and Harry are turned upside down - but in a surprisingly good way.
