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.

Inside the garden was made to lure the bird back into captivity. And the text was weird, and the illustrations were weirder.
