Martha is cuckoo about birds, and goes birdspotting in her garden every day. One day she spots a real, live dodo, and the two become great friends. Martha wants to keep him secret, to protect him. But it's not easy keeping secrets, and she must do some very quick thinking when she accidentally lets her secret slip. HELLO, MR DODO is a unique, captivating picture book about friendship, doughnuts, birdspotting and secrets, illustrated in glowing, retro colours by the super-talented Nicholas John Frith.
