)-- Charlie Bird—The Best Bird Ever is a warm and lighthearted new children’s book about Charlie, a Jenday Conure (a type of miniature parrot). Illustrated with colorful photographs, Charlie Bird chronicles the adventures and misadventures of one very special bird and of the people who love him.
Outskirts Press is delighted to announce the publication of Charlie Bird—The Best Bird Ever by San Diego author Linda Bird. Full of humor and beautiful color photographs, Charlie Bird is a semi-fictionalized account of the adventures of a Jenday Conure, a type of small parrot native to South and Central America.
This is the story of Charlie Bird, and his featherless flock, Sara and Molly. Charlie is a small parrot, a Jenday Conure. The two sisters think he is “The Best Bird Ever.” That is, to them anyway! Sara and Molly are Charlie’s best human friends. Sara is nine years old. Molly has celebrated seven birthdays. Charlie Bird came to live with the girls two years ago. He is a very important part of their lives now. They eat together, play together, and even watch TV together.
“Charlie Bird is a very mischievous little bird,” says author Linda Bird. “He is constantly providing entertainment to our family. Charlie Bird highlights some of the real and imaginary episodes in Charlie’s life. I have lived with Charlie for three years, an experience that has enlightened me to the intelligence and sense of fun that parrots posses.”
Charlie’s curiosity often gets him into trouble, but Linda wouldn’t trade him for the world. Charlie Bird—The Best Bird Ever will show youngsters just how intelligent and fun-loving birds can be. They’ll never look at these feathered creatures in quite the same way again.
