My Review

What can I say this book is just lovely, so sweet! its something really special! I promise it will just put a smile on your face!

Full of adventure this tale is about how a purple bellied parrot finds his way home and learns about been true to himself.

but the journey along with way is amazing, fun, action packed and funny (loved the little jokes in the footnotes!)

A fabulous tale of friendship, love and adventure that anyone would enjoy!

for all this fun and the funny moment this story has a real edge to it it really makes you think when reading it, about how you behave and how you live and what parts you keep hidden through fear of acceptance.

I loved the moral to this story that been yourself is enough! and that's why I think this is not only a great read for adults but an important read for children alike, the books recommendation from 11- 100 is so true, even my 8 year old is loving this read at the moment!

The Purple Bellied Parrot is making it's way round my Mini Twist boys at the moment and I Promise to update with their thoughts in the future! (we are a little behind bedtime reading at the moment due to illness!) and when we are done we will be passing this book on to our little school library as this book and the message it gives are too important not to share!
