#ParrotTalk by David B. Seaburn Spotlight with #Giveaway



ABOUT PARROT TALK 

Lucas and Grinder are more than a little surprised and confused to hear that their mother, Millie, who they haven’t heard from in over thirty years, has died. Now her best friend wants them to come to Pittsburgh to take care of their mother’s effects, chief among them being Paul the parrott. A road trip ensues with memorable stops at a Racino, a Pittsburgh landmark greasy sppon, and finally a ride on an incline trolley to meet their mother’s friend, Janice. They are taken aback when she introduces them to Paul, an African grey parrot in the depths of grief, who has things to say that will change their lives. And so a transformative adventure begins.

  11. Sounds like an interesting way to get a message across that has probably never been used before.

  12. Parrots need some training to mimic speech, and they tend to bite to assert themselves when fearful.
    This book would definitely peak my interest with some amazing parrot talk.

  13. Parrots squawk and talk and can mimic any sound. They use this skill as a weapon to divert the attention of predators, to save themselves from being eaten.
    What an absolutely fascinating idea to put a parrot in a book storyline.
