About The Book
Freddy Bird lives with his eccentric father Bert,a genius inventor who has filled their house with his extraordinary gadgets. But Freddy is embarrassed by his unusual Dad and just wants to have a normal life and family.
Bert works for powerful reclusive businessman C.G. Wortnall, developing new products in the forbidding factory on the hill, which over looks their hometown. Although Bert is only interested in creating ever-more-astounding inventions, Wortnall’s clever gizmos are gradually taking away people’s jobs by automating the town, starting with the local hairdressers, who now roam the streets,out-of-work, following the incredible popularity of Wortnall’s Hair-raiser, a helmet-like contraption which styles hair in seven seconds.
When Bert goes missing in dramatic and mysterious circumstances, Freddy and best friend Minnie find themselves plunged into mortal danger. But after they discover a secret tunnel where Freddy’s father has hidden parts of an amazing robot, they decide to outwit their enemies by putting the droid together-a droid that looks just like Freddy’s Dad.
Their roles reversed,Freddy sets out like a parent to train the robot into being just like his father. However,pursued by dangerous thugs, deadly mechanical birds and a sinister shark-like car, the children and Dad Droid are forced to go on the run, giving Freddy the opportunity to try and find out what’s really happened to his Dad.
