Cooper’s Book Report

This month’s book is Mars in the Outback¬†¬†by Andrew, Marley and Flynn Neilan.

Mars is lonely, so his humans take him on a trip to the Outback. The little blue budgie sees lots of native birds on his trip. When the family arrives in Palm Valley, Mars decides to explore. He meets up with a budgie flock who are not very accepting of a blue budgie. His humans come up with some ways for Mars to blend in, but none seem to work. Will Mars be able to make friends with the wild budgies?

Cooper enjoyed this book. Of course she loved that the star of the story was a blue budgie. She admired Mars for his perseverance and was happy that he finally found acceptance (and a kiss from the queen budgie).
Cooper also liked that this book was written by a family. She thinks that all families should write books about their budgies.
