Freekham high is a school where things rarely go according to plan. Sara and Sam are putting on a school play to celebrate the end of term. Not much could go wrong with that, you might think. But when a plague of pigeons start to take an interest, everything gets completely out of control. The costumes go missing, the teachers get in a flap, Sara thinks there’s a ghost in the store room and there are pigeons just about everywhere. Great fun with a strong school setting.
