it was amazing
Read in March, 2010

In her hilarious and thought provoking memoir, Jenny Gardiner flings open her door, invites us into her home, and introduces us to Graycie -- the family’s feisty and quirky African gray parrot. With lots of wit and moments of pure exasperation, Jenny tells the unadorned truth about what giving a home to a bird such as Graycie really entails, and it’s not what I ever imagined.

Besides being thoroughly entertaining and downright funny, Jenny’s memoir speaks of things that translate into lessons we all need to remember in our daily lives: tolerance, patience, and compassion, just to name a few. As an animal lover myself, I really appreciated how Jenny and her family are committed to keeping Graycie for the entirety of her life, no matter how snarkey and unpredictable she can be.

A great read that I highly recommend!
