Jean Marano was born in 1915 in New York City to Italian immigrant parents. After high school, she worked several years as a dressmaker. She has always loved animals and had a magical ability growing flowers. She has lived in Danvers, Massachusetts for the last 40 years, where she has won several contests for her character doll creations, such as Popeye and Mother Goose. Now 96, she is too old to sew and garden, but clearly recalls her memories of Jumbo. Daughter Lydia, who grew up with Jumbo in the 1950s, is currently an artist and science fiction writer living in California.

In the early 1900's, father brought home a pet parrot for his five daughters. This book describes the fun that the family had with the bird who could talk in both English and Spanish. On the first day, the five girls gathered around the parrot to decide on a name. After several suggestions, the bird spoke up "My Name is Lola. I'm a bird." Hence the name of the book and the first funny story.
