KIRKUS REVIEW

Every child who has ever owned a bird will light up when he reads about the discovery of Jetsam, a parakeet found wandering along the beach, and of his grand entrance into a family of humans. How father, mother and children get to know this newcomer -- its habits and quirks, and how each becomes involved in his growth and activities, are told in a series of special incidents such as The Day Jet Discovered Cocoa, (to father's horror), The Day of the Bath (ending in the family soaking) The Day of the High Adventure (when Jet flew the coop), etc. The authentic quality to each of these escapades will have bird lovers nodding vigorously as they remember similar experiences and make novices impatient for a trip to the nearest pet shop. Satisfying independent reading.
