Pablo & Birdy

Today we’d like to recommend Pablo & Birdy by Alison McGheeImage result for pablo and birdy

In this new fiction book featuring magical realism, we read about Pablo, a boy with a mysterious early start in life – floating to shore on the tropical island of Isla as a baby tied inside an inflatable swimming pool with a colorful bird, later named Birdy, by his side. Where did Pablo and Birdy come from and does Birdy know about Pablo’s origin? Throughout the story, Pablo wonders who were his mother and father and what happened to them. He questions Emmanuel, his supportive adoptive father, his closest friends and even Birdy who doesn’t speak like the other birds roaming the island. Now approaching is 10th birthday, Pablo must make a difficult decision when he discovers that the legend of the Seafaring Parrot might be true.

You can find this in our Juvenile Fiction collection under the call number J MCGHEE.
