His intelligence surprised everyone, ...
His intelligence surprised everyone, including Irene. He learned to count, add, and subtract; to recognize shapes, sizes, and colors; and to speak, and understand, hundreds of words. These were things no other animal could do. Alex wasn't supposed to have the brainpower to do them, either. But he did them anyway.
Accompanied by Meilo So's stunning illustrations, Alex and Irene's story is one of groundbreaking discoveries about animal intelligence, hard work, and the loving bonds of a unique friendship.
Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, September 24, 2012:
“It’s a remarkable story with a sad ending—but it’s a good kind of sad.”

This is interesting reading for any age with strikingly beautiful illustrations that make the parrot look very appealing. It is such a very pretty book that it would make a nice gift for children who like animals and science but do not want a thick or complicated book.Was this review helpful?
