Flossita del Budgeroo (Flo for short) is a very pampered parakeet. She has lots of treats and toys and belongs to a very rich old lady. One day the old lady goes away forever (!). Flo is taken to a new home and finds herself in a strange aviary with lots of other budgies.
Flo is not pleased to be with ordinary budgies when she is so special. Plump Flo can’t fly very well and feels out of sorts. She is rude to Fred, a budgie who tries to befriend her.
Will Flo be able to adapt to her new home and flock? Will she join the budgie choir – perhaps sing a solo? Will she find romance with Fred??
Cooper could relate to Flo (as she is also a special budgie). She was happy that Flo became friends with the other birds and found happiness in her new home. Cooper loved the illustrations (and liked that Flo was a blue budgie). Cooper is now practicing her singing so she can become a soloist, too.
