[From jacket flap] THE HERO OF THIS BOOK is a charming little rascal who is both good and bad, polite and impolite, lovable and irritating, ofttimes quite excitable, and most of the time very raucous. Like all bright little ones his age, he has learned how to get what he wants. He is jealous and he demands attention, but above all, he loves to play and to make unendurable noise. His favorite game is shooting marbles, and when he isn't romping he's eating. The aroma of fried bacon sends him into raptures and a self-imposed state of model good behavior. When bacon is frying in the pan, the impish little rogue is particularly diligent in reassuring the cook that "Chris is a good boy." It is quite evident from the above that the proper name of our little hero is Christopher, and that he certainly has the qualities and instincts of the average, healthy, growing little boy?only Christopher isn't a little boy?Christopher is a parrot, and one of the most engaging and amusing "personalities" you will ever have the pleasure of meeting. Christopher is not a figment of fantasy, nor is he a fictional character. He is very much a reality, to which his mistress, Dorothy L. Cutting, can heartily attest. Miss Cutting acquired Christopher when he was very young, and this is when his formal education began, including lessons on how to talk and how to behave. Concerning Christopher is a digest of the highlights in this unique parrot's history to date. There are chuckles galore in the pages of this volume, but the author's observations, in addition to supplying animal high jinks and merriment, are also valuable contributions to a greater understanding of animal psychology. Dorothy L. Cutting is a librarian with the Kansas City Western Dental College, Kansas City, Missouri. Previously connected with the Kansas City Public Library, Miss Cutting served for three and a half years with the WACs as an army librarian in this country and overseas.
