Meet Onion O’Brien. He’s an ordinary kid growing up in the suburbs where nothing ever happens. Except when it does, it always happens to him. Luckily, his friends have his back. There’s Sive O’Connor, Dallan Okoye, Cliona O’Hare and Onion’s big brother Derek (who thinks he’s too cool to be in the gang). Together they’re the Five O’s. The circus has come to Ballinlud and Onion’s grandad got free tickets for the whole gang! But the evening turns out to be more eventful than planned when a young orang-utan escapes and ends up in Onion’s back garden. Can the Five O’s save the ape from the evil ringmaster and keep her hidden in suburbia long enough to get her safely to Tota Freedom Wildlife Park?
