Princess Penelope's Parrot by Helen Lester

The delightfully droll humor is carried out in whimsical watercolor illustrations. School Library Journal Spoiled Princess Penelope's new parrot simply wont talk, even when she rattles its cage, calls it names, and threatens to chain it up. But when Prince Percival comes courting, the clever parrot surprises them both when he opens his beak at exactly the wrong time! This new addition to the Laugh-Along Lessons series is about the importance of speaking carefully and kindly. Includes a parent/teacher discussion guide and downloadable audio!
