View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Transformational memoir about how Margaret Wright worked through a phobic childhood; and with the help of the many animal companions in her life, she transformed into a powerful advocate for their well-being and welfare. Her adult connection with her African Grey parrots opened her mind and heart to see nature from a new perspective. Maggie Wright walks the reader through a profound way of seeing nature's critters as the true individuals that they are. It is not just a memoir about Margaret T. Wright's relationship with her animals, but it also tackles difficult issues that all animal owners will be facing over the next few years: ANIMAL OWNERSHIP versus ANIMAL GUARDIANSHIP. Maggie explains WHY she believes animal OWNERS must be owners and NOT GUARDIANS. There are many fun stories in the book, such as when Maggie and Merlin Tewillager, her African Grey parrot, went to visit Dr. Pepperberg and Alex the Grey. Bringing Back the Magic is about love. It's about remembering the magic of childhood and bringing it back into our lives. It's about loving our animals and protecting their welfare. You'll want to hug this book because it comes so deeply from the heart!

About the Author:

Margaret (Maggie) Wright is a marketing consultant, author/publisher, and expert on African Grey parrots. She authored the popular Barron's pet manual on African Greys, and she is the creator/publisher of Nature's Corner Magazine.


Maggie Wright takes us on an adventure into the mind of a child and the world of animals, simultaneously. While the book is a personal journey of loss, struggles, achievements, and love, it is also a journey of awareness and respect for all life on this planet. Maggie challenges us in this book to look deeper, beyond our love of animals, into the reality and true nature of animals. -- --Dr. Kim Bloomer, author & co-host of Animal Talk Naturally

Soulfully written and thought-provoking, Margaret Wright's lifelong affection and respect for God's creation and creatures shines through this engaging memoir. Her life is defined by her losses and joys, in large part through the animals that have shared her life, both domestic and wild. It's a wonderful read that kept me wanting more. -- --Dr. Jeannie Thomason, veterinary naturopath

This is a moving story, not only regarding the array of pets that Margaret Wright has known, but also because those creatures proved to be so pivotal for her emotional survival. Animal lovers will enjoy the book; but even those who are less concerned with non-human beings will find themselves engrossed in her intricate and unusual life story. -- --Ardath Mayhar, SFWA Author Emeritus, 2008
