I NEED a Parrot
But what does a parrot need? A book about wanting and needing; what a child wants and what a wild bird needs.
I Need a Parrot is a picture book full of word play and quirky illustrations that shine. The simplicity of the text in this story allows the visual narrative to sing and play.'
It makes for a thrilling read, laughing along with the recognisable wheedlings of a child in wanting something, then pushed into the thought for something other than themselves.'
