First Little Birdies! review...

Nationally renown parrot trainer Barbara Heidenreich, of, has reviewed Little Birdies! for the upcoming issue of her publication, Good Bird Magazine. Barbara has consulted on animal training in zoos and other facilities worldwide since 1990. She's the author of Good Bird! A Guide to Solving Behavior Problems in Companion Parrots and The Parrot Problem Solver - Finding Solutions to Aggressive Behavior, the producer of the Good Bird Parrot Behavior and Training DVD series and publisher of Good Bird Magazine.

Here's a taste:

"Most fiction these days seem to focus on murder mystery, crime or romance. I have to admit none of those genres spark my interest. However I recently came upon a novel perfectly suited for parrot enthusiasts who like character studies, suspense, drama and action! ...

Set in my old stomping grounds upstate New York, Lewis paints the terrain in great detail whether it be the university classroom, the parrot sanctuary, roadside fruit stands or wooded rolling hills. I enjoyed picturing the sights and sounds of upstate New York being invaded by a flock of misfits. ...

I think what I liked most about this novel was that it was a rollicking good adventure, full of science, suspense, a hint of romance, a few bad guys, a few heroes and of course birds as a focal point. Even with all that, there was also room for an important take home message. It certainly struck me when one of the good guys said to his bird “We take you into our home, and if we treat you right, if we earn your trust, you give us your hearts.” Words of wisdom from a writer who knows the connection we share with animals."
