About this title


Bright illustrations, along with hand-lettered notes that discuss the behavior of parrots, chronicle the life of Turkey, a pet parrot who wakes her owner up each day, helps around the house, and, sometimes, goes to parties.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3?Interwoven with a story about a pet parrot named Turkey are cautions and advice about caring for this bird. The author is emphatic about not adopting a wild bird, and stresses the fact that much time must be devoted to its care, perhaps an entire lifetime. She goes on to detail Turkey's behavior and demands, and makes it clear that a parrot can be a difficult, destructive pet, as well as a good companion. A great deal of affection is shown between Turkey's owner, a writer, both in the words and in the watercolor and pen-and-ink illustrations. Several pages have inserts with interesting information about wild parrots and parrot care, but they are printed in a decorative font that will be difficult for children to read. They also detract from the narrative flow. Despite its flaws, this is an easy-to-read pet story for expository reading.?Tina Smith Entwistle, Oakley Park Elementary School,
