    A Five-Star Return for Pickles!

    "Parrots will do as they please, humans should relax and get used to the idea." Um, yeah, that is pretty much how it goes with parrots. This book is s sequel to Pickles the Parrot and what a satisfying encore it is.

    We Pickles fans already know that Pickles is engaging, uproarious entertaining, headstrong and in complete possession of his own ideas about life and what he wants from it. He is one very smart bird.

    Because I have two parrots, I especially appreciate Pickles the Parrot Returns. Author Georgi Abbott, both a keen observer and a fine storyteller, weaves much into this meaty delight of a book.

    Chock full of the day-to-day routine of living with a parrot: parrot-feeding recipes, routines, strategies, training techniques, schedules, phobias, entertainments, sense of humor, avoidance of baths, mischief-among many other topics-and peppered with Pickles' antics and vignettes of life with an African Grey parrot, this second Pickles book is an inspired sequel.

    Sometimes when reading about yet another of Pickles' ornery capers, my parrots' pranks seem downright uninspired. However, I quickly remind myself that I did not have to sweep five pounds of flour off every surface of the kitchen and attempt to get a flour-sodden bird clean either.

    Ms. Abbott offers a grounded assessment of parrot-human interactions, favoring neither species. I laughed as hard as the first Pickles book and I got more of a sense of life with Pickles and his humans. This book has a bit more of a story weaving it all together, more the author's voice and observations of life with Pickles.

    Not everything that any parrot does is funny. I appreciate the groundedness of Pickles the Parrot Returns. Pickles continues to delight and surprise us with his clever and capable adaptation as a member of a human-parrot-canine flock. He certainly makes it a flock. And Georgi Abbott has put forth another wonderful Pickles book full of belly laughs as well as solidly informative.

    I laughed plenty and, yes, learned much reading Pickles the Parrot Returns. It was the perfect balance of information and entertainment. In fact, I would recommend this Pickles book to non-parrot owners as the first book to better understand of life with a parrot-and then read Pickles the Parrot for sheer entertainment. Either way, parrot owners and non-parrot owners alike will be delighted with both books. Do not miss either one.
