KIRKUS REVIEW

Another trifle from England like Max the Mouse (above), this purports to be the parrot's own account of being trapped in the jungle by a sneaky hunter, ending up with a family across the sea (presumably England), and, later, helping the family by tracking a burglar--who turns out to be the same sneaky hunter. The most noticeable feature of Cole's cartoons is the googly eyes on all concerned--a desperate touch that doesn't fit with Cressey's flat, take-it-or-leave-it narration.
