4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, accurate, and enjoyable. 26 July 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This children's book about a parrot named Turkey stands out. Most parrot books for children show the parrots doing things parrots would not actually do. This book provides accurate, interesting information about parrots. It shows the development of a parrot from an egg to 7 days, 15 days, and on up to an adult. Diet, behavior, and grooming are also discussed.

The title of the book -- Town Parrot -- reveals that the focus of the book is on pet parrots and not on wild parrots. Turkey lives on the top floor of a house with a writer named Ann. As the author describes a typical day in Turkey's life, much helpful information for understanding pet parrots is provided.

Yet this book is much more than just a minature textbook on parrots. The illustrations are colorful and interesting. Each page has several things to look at. The facts about parrots are woven into a story about Turkey and what his life is like. This is an enjoyable book for both children and adults.

5.0 out of 5 stars other book, same title 30 April 1998
By kerfoot@edgenet.net - Published on Amazon.com
There was an 18th century book entitled "The Town Parrot", which had a variety of gossip-related short stories and poems. It would appear that the book being offered for sale here is a completely different book by the same title, and it should not be mistaken for the original.
