author of Babe-The Gallant Pig
An African Gray parrot is the last thing Harry Holdswroth expects to inherit from his Great-Uncle George. Who wants a pet bird when you're hoping for a treasure chest? Certainly not Harry--until Mad (short of Madison) opens his beak and starts to speak! Turns out Mad's no ordinary pet-shop parrot. In fact, he's a first-rate chess player, a walkign dictionary, adn a great new friend. Before long, the whole family wonders what they'd ever do without him. Then the unthinkable happens--a burglar breaks in and steals away with Mad! Will he ever find his way home?

Dick King-Smith (of Babe the Sheep Pig fame) has his own inimitable style and twists. Interesting. Friends are found in some unusual shapes.
