When her teacher assigns a report about animals and all the
popular animals get snatched up, Ellie McDoodle is stumped
for a topic.
Then a neighbor goes on vacation and asks Ellie to watch
her African gray parrot, and it seems her problem is solved.
Unfortunately, a new problem pops up almost immediately
when the parrot flies the coop-- literally.
With help from a librarian, a zookeeper, some good friends,
and Ellie's own pet-obsessed family, the bird comes home--
but will Ellie finish her report in time?
Filled with cartoons, diagrams, lists, games, and plenty of
witty asides, Ellie's newest adventure is a perfect pet primer
and just might inspire some creative doodling, too.
