Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3–A multicolored parrot is flown from his native Puerto Rico to his new home in a luxurious apartment in Chicago. His new owners, the Smiths, are an elderly couple who try everything to help him adjust to his new environment. Nothing about this urban home suits him, especially not the rain, the snow, and the dull gray carpet. His disastrous attempt to fly freely inside the apartment lands him in a luxurious cage, where he is overcome with even more sadness, loneliness, and feeling of entrapment. In the end, the little parrot uses a clever form of protest to outwit the Smiths in his quest to return to the beloved open space and greenery that is his native island. Pen and watercolor illustrations juxtapose the pastel colors of urban city life with the bright, cheery colors of the parrots and their natural environment in this modern-day ecological story that serves as a metaphor for freedom. Pair this title by a renowned Cuban children’s writer with Alma Flor Ada’s La jaula dorada (The Golden Cage) (Del Sol Books, 1999) for a rich comparison and exploration of the themes of flight and freedom.–Oralia Garza de Cortés, Latino Children’s Literature Consultant, Pasadena, CA
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3—A multicolored parrot comes to Chicago to live in the Smith's apartment. He desperately misses the fresh air and green trees of Puerto Rico, but he can't tell the Smiths what is wrong because he can only say the two phrases he was taught in Puerto Rico, "Buenas noches, Oquendo" and "Buenos dias, Oquendo." When the parrot tries to escape, he's put in a golden cage for protection. Becoming more sad and lonely, he begins to pluck out his beautiful feathers one by one. The Smiths ask a zookeeper for advice. He explains that the parrot is lonely, so the Smith's get a female parrot from Puerto Rico. Before long an egg is laid in the parrots' nest. The parrots decide that their offspring will never grow up in a cage, so they begin to pluck out their feathers one by one. This time the Smiths know what they must do and send the parrots back to Puerto Rico where they raise their chick happily in the fresh air and greenery. Hilda Perera's simple story is expressively told in Spanish by Gabriella Cavallero who employs different voices for each character. Sound effects and background music supplement the telling. The introduction is in English. The accompanying book features lovely full-page pen-and-watercolor illustrations on a white background. Animal lovers will enjoy this story of compassion and the importance of love and freedom.—Teresa Wittmann, Westgate Elementary School, Edmonds, WA
