The sequel to the first book, "Blabber Mouth", featuring Rowena Batts, who is unable to speak. Rowena has enough problems in her life without adopting Sticky Beak, a crazy cockatoo. But it's Sticky who finally helps Ro to come to terms with what is really bothering her.

Review:

When Rowena Batts, a young mute girl, teams up with a disturbed and mistreated cockatoo with a deep-rooted attitude problem, she begins to understand that there are some dilemmas that need to be faced head on, despite the endless obstacles life insists on throwing into her path. The eternally saucy Morris Gleitzman, author of Blabber Mouth, Second Childhood and Misery Guts, stamps his own personal, fresh and sassy style on this hysterically funny yet spookily heartwarming story.

As per usual, Gleitzman treats his characters with deference and humour, and encourages the reader to empathise with them while making them laugh out loud. Rib- tickling farce coupled with Gleitzman's enviable talent for making the reader face up to difficult issues, Sticky Beak is a little gem of a book which will appeal to anyone with a love of intelligent, quirky fiction that treats its characters and its readers with respect. --Susan Harrison

Review:

"Children love this kind of outrageous humour." (Kirkus Reviews)

"Rowena is in the principal's office. The rest of the school is wiping raspberry goop off their faces, and Rowena admits she threw the jelly custard into the fan on purpose – although she doesn't know why. Rowena is mute. She uses sign language or written messages to communicate. Her mother is dead, her often embarrassing father is now married to her teacher, and she has anger management problems. Mary-Anne Fahey's reading is bright and clear, enlivening Morris Gleitzman's clever, troubled young heroine. After Rowena rescues an outrageously verbal cockatoo from the local bully, Fahey's performance reflects Rowena's conflicted feelings about the mouthy bird AND about the new baby coming. Some Australian expressions may prove confusing, but American kids will have no trouble connecting to Rowena's dilemma." (AudioFile Magazine)
