9780140364927: Harry's Mad

Having a parrot foisted upon him, all the way from America, isn't Harry's idea of a decent legacy. He'd been dreaming of untold riches and then all he'd got was this boring old parrot. But when the parrot, Mad, starts speaking Harry discovers that he is an ace at board games and crosswords.

From the Inside Flap:

"Harry's parents and friends think he's crazy because he acts out the rich fantasies of his 10-year-old imagination. And when his eccentric American uncle dies and leaves Harry a parrot named Madison (Mad), they're convinced of it. A believable, satisfying animal fantasy, with memorable characterizations and playful humor...a sprightly read-aloud."--"Publishers Weekly

About the Author:

Dick King-Smith was born and raised in Gloucestershire, England, surrounded by pet animals. After twenty years as a farmer, he turned to teaching and then to writing children's books. Dick wrote mostly about animals: farmyard fantasy, as he likes to call it, often about pigs, his special favorites. He enjoyed writing for children, meeting the children who read his books, and knowing that they get enjoyment from what he does. Among his well-loved books are Babe: The Gallant Pig, which was made into a major motion picture and was nominated for an Academy Award.
