When Adam gets the chance to go to Discovery Island with his Grandma, he takes his camera, a notebook and pencil, so he can practice at being a journalist. He's prepared for adventure. In the tropical jungle he discovers a very rare bird. It's the last of its breed--almost.
Now it's up to Adam to get help to save the few remaining roukoukou from thieves. In this story a young boy finds courage and engages his friends to solve a small but troubling mystery.
