About the Book

Rocky is a naughty parrot who lives in Switzerland with his family. One day after his family places his cage on their balcony so he can enjoy watching other birds, Rocky escapes and flies away with his green parrot girlfriend.

Rocky loves exploring the outside world. But soon after he and his girlfriend fly into a forest, Rocky is captured by a big man who takes him home and clips his wings. Frightened and feeling quite alone, Rocky realizes he misses his wonderful family. Will he ever find his way back home to reunite with those he loves?

In this tale of courage and hope inspired by a true story, a domestic parrot living in Switzerland escapes from his cage and embarks on an unexpected adventure full of danger and surprises.
