The 14½ lb Budgie follows Mike Harding’s bestselling The Unluckiest Man In The World with even more improbable stories, impossible monologues and impertinent songs, all alive with his irreverent and individual wit.
When still but a sweet and innocent lad, Mike Harding took a look at himself and the world around him. He put down his pint, his copy of the African Missionary Magazine and the live turkey he was carrying at the time, and thought to himself: either the world is mad or I am. Since that fateful day, he has spent most of his life trying to find out which of those propositions is actually true. Though, as his Uncle Festus would have said, ‘A man who tests see-saws has an up-and-down sort of life’.
