Snowball: The Dancing Cockatoo by Sy Montgomery, Judith Oksner

This is the true story of how an unwanted cockatoo achieved international fame as a YouTube sensation, television star, and scientific study subject, all by rocking out to the beat of his favorite tunes. Snowball tells the story with his own spirited psitticine spin. But everything he says is true, including how he inspired the World’s First Bird Dance-Off Contest, became the subject of a groundbreaking study about music and the brain, and has now gone into teaching children how to dance and doing charity work.

I attending her book signing in NYC along with my daughter's first grade class from Amber Charter school. The story is very heartfelt and funny. We had the honor of hearing Sy read the story out loud before it was available to the public.
