Helen Lester, Author, Lynn M. Munsinger, Illustrator , illus. by Lynn Munsinger. Houghton/Lorraine $5.95 (32p) ISBN 978-0-618-13845-6

An ultra-spoiled royal receives a pet parrot for her birthday; the parrot is so appalled by the girl's greediness that it refuses to speak to her. "There may be no one more adroit at wryly depicting childish petulance than Munsinger, while Lester's storytelling calls to mind the dry wit of a Thurber," said PW. Ages 4-8. (Apr.)
