Coco was fixated by the clock on the wall. It felt as if the hands barely moved, counting the seconds in minutes and the hours in days. “Biggest point, two more clicks,” he murmured under his breath, clicking his beak in unison with the clock.
The moment had finally arrived! “Good morning guys!” his voice reverberated through the cavernous rooms of the old wooden house.
He was met first with quiet, and then the complaints started…
Coco, Pablo, Squeaker, Kiku, and Red are an odd flock of parrots who have been living under one roof with the same family for years. Like any other family, they’ve grown a little too comfortable and a little tired of each other’s company and their mundane daily experiences.
Soon, change arrives in a way none of them could have expected. One day, the quirky flock finds their lives taking a turn that leads them on a several day, cross-town adventure.
They pick up some new friends along the way, and their sometimes frightening real-world experience leaves them with a newfound appreciation for each other and the human family they’ve taken for granted.
Will things be the same at adventure’s end, or will their lives be changed forever? Find out in Tale Feathers, a new novel by Brian Meade, perfect for readers and bird lovers young and old.
