When Percy the Park Keeper emerges from his workshop after three whole days of banging and crashing and tap, tap, tapping, his friends are more than a little surprised when they see what he has been up to for all that time. Instead of the bird table or a park bench, he has built an amazing new lawn mower, consisting of a sofa for him to sit on and a fan to keep him cool when he is working. But what Percy has not realised is that his latest contraption can actually fly, and before long he is hovering way above the park with all his friends on board...
Nick Butterworth fans will be delighted by Percy's Bumpy Ride for many reasons, not least of which is that for the first time EVER Percy actually leaves the park, hovering in the sky and looking down on his kingdom from above.
A suspenseful adventure story filled with fantastic surprises that will have young readers squealing with delight, Percy's Bumpy Ride is a must for anyone who has previously entered Percy's little world, will introduce new readers to life beyond the park gates, and would make an ideal gift for any young reader.
