This children’s book — based on a true story — tells the story of Lucky, a parrot who is captured in the wild and eventually regains his freedom with the help of a young boy.
The story helps encourage children to be kind to animals without being didactic and gently awakens readers to the plight of captive birds.
Written in 2004, this much-awaited story is finally available to the public in this beautifully illustrated 32 page softcover book that is printed on recycled, chlorine-free paper to protect the environment and the world’s forests. What’s more, 100% of the proceeds from the sale of this book benefit avian welfare, rescue, and conservation – to help birds like Lucky.
The story is also a perfect fit for a wider educational curriculum including geography and culture of Indonesia, the natural history, behavior, and physical characteristics of parrots and tropical forest ecosystems, as well as real-life conservation efforts.
