About this Item

Contents 1. Mad Mozart gives a concert. 2. The Parakeet that squawked in English. 3. Shabby and sweety ash set up home sweet home. 4. The catapult kid. 5. Hovel trouble for Nectarinia. 6. Feeding the birds. 7. When Banshee kissed Bimbo. 8. Family problems for the chillups. 9. Brainfever. 10. Inspector Kotwal comes calling. Life may seem idyllic of the birds but all is not always well in their lush paradise. For a start some new hotels have strange and awful anti bird policies. Visitors create havoc with their urban aggression and within the bird community itself there are problems small and large. When Mad Mozart sings his heart out to win his girl and defend his territory his success has unexpected consequences. Shabby the hornbill tries to ensure vault like security for his new wife with disastrous results. And when Banshee the beautiful barn owl smooches his beloved Bimbo right in front of the minister for cultural propriety all hell breaks loose and only the fat rats dance. Observing all this drama and adding spice and acid to it are the Screechers and Shriekers a gang of jungle babblers led by the sagacious Frowzle Ma'am. Witty rollicking and keenly observed Ranjit Lal's collection of interlinked stories dramatizes the triumphs and traumas of the world of birds while Rahul Dutta's vibrant illustrations vividly capture the humour and magic of the stories. 155 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 56435
