Brian, a little blind boy, receives a parakeet for his 8th birthday. He names his new pet, Scratchy, and teaches him to talk. One day Brian’s stupid brother leaves the door open and Scratchy flies away! Will Brian get Scratchy back? Read the book and find out!
Cooper loved this book, even though the parakeet was green and not blue.
