Conker: Red Banana

By Michael Morpurgo, Illustrated by Petra Brown

When Stevie Rooster is mean about Nick’s old dog dying, Nick throws Stevie’s best conker into the pond. But Grandma says there’s a better way to get back at Stevie – become Conker King of Jubilee Park. In order to do that, Nick must use some conkers from the tree in the old scrapyard.

And in that scrapyard is a skinny, starving dog who looks like Nick’s old dog. Can Nick rescue the dog and become conker champion? This is a moving story about grief, redemption and the love of a family pet.
