Cooper’s Book Report

This month’s book is Andy Gets the Blame by Freda M. Hurt.a1Ten year old Andy wants to buy her Aunty Loo a blue budgerigar for Christmas. But she hasn’t enough money. Each of Andy’s schemes to earn the 21 shillings for a budgie end in disaster. The worst happens when she is accused of stealing a budgie from an aviary. Will Andy be able to clear her name and give her aunt the most wonderful Christmas gift ever?a2Cooper loved this book. She thought the story was charming and was pleased that it had a happy ending. Someone who would worry and plan as much as Andy did for a budgie would probably make a great budgie slave – er, owner. Cooper particularly liked that the coveted budgie was blue.

All Together Now

Emmy and Felix finally moved into the big cage. Felix pals around with Gordie, but is a little standoffish with the others. I think Emmy wanted to be alpha female, but Lera shut that down pretty quickly. Both are doing well and seem to enjoy being with the flock. And I enjoy having only one cage to clean : ).
