Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Dianne Ochiltree
Ever since Rosie and her Aunt Maria moved into a house, Rosie has longed for a dog who is every bit as smart and brave as the one in Rosie's favorite movie, Lassie. But Aunt Maria says their house is too small for a dog. Rosie finds a fine-feathered solution to her problem at the Wags 'n' Whiskers Pet Shop: a perky parakeet named Winky Blue. Rosie convinces her aunt that their house is big enough for a bird, and convinces herself that Winky Blue is smarter than any dog. She and her friend Michael try to teach Winky Blue tricks. Rosie dreams of having great adventures with her parakeet, the hero. But when Winky Blue doesn't live up to her high expectations, Rosie learns something about loving and caring for, a pet of her own. This is an entertaining, well-written early chapter book. The black-and-white spot drawings are delightful, too. 1998 (orig.
