Jessie’s eyes searched for an escape route, but there was none. The high tide had cut off all access out of the bay except for the sea itself. They both knew it would be impossible for them to swim against
the waves that were sweeping into the cove . . .

When a conservation expert visits their school, Marrick and Jessie discover that a rare parakeet is living right under their noses. The colourful little bird can be heard high in the treetops in the forest near their home. Marrick and Fran are determined to find it. But they aren’t the only ones interested in the parakeet. The rare bird is highly prized by poachers. When the pair discover a strange boat in the forest’s cove, their adventure takes a scary turn . . .
