This is a book with an interesting title and an interesting cover illustration -- and those features are the best part of the book. I'm not a fan of birds in captivity, anyway, especially when they want to escape. If everyone had arrived to make the bird a garden for the bird to live outside of the cage, I would have been more of a fan of this book.
