Cooper’s book report

Maxie by Betty Basler Barboza

This short, but sweet little book (recommended by Susan) is about a budgie named Maxie and his life with the Basler family. Maxie was a charming and talkative little fellow, who had a series of amusing adventures. Cooper’s favorite parts of the book where when Maxie saved baby Brad’s life (from poisoning!) and when Maxie dropped his toys to the floor (a game Cooper likes to play). The family loved Maxie so much they had him stuffed after he died (that’s stuffed Maxie on the cover – yikes).

  1. OK, that stuffed thing is really sick (I had forgotten about that yuck). I really really loved “Pepper the story of a parakeet” by Deborah Crawford. Think it was written in the 50’s or 60’s so she does some strange things too.
