Parrot, pug and pig all have in common wonderful and warming stories of their adventures. You want them all as part of your family. Fascinating to read about the exciting times of each talented animal and those humans who are their friends and mentors. The fact boxes add really interesting information that makes this book both educational and fun to read. A book clearly to go to for all young readers.

Moira Donohue tells three incredible stories about animals whose intelligence and bravery surpass that of most humans. She uses witty humor alongside fascinating facts to tell stories that are both enjoyable and incredibly educational. In addition to the specific animal stories, Donohue includes a number of side bars with more generic facts about the different species to engage the reader at a deeper level, and encourage further exploration into the world of parrots, pigs, and pugs.
