Publisher Comments:

The perennially bestselling and acclaimed classic of the little bird who preferred human companionship to other quail.

About the Author

Born on Cape Cod at Falmouth, Massachusetts, Margaret A. Stanger grew up in her pioneer parents' home in Iowa. With a B.A. from Grinnell College and an M.A. from Columbia University (where she also studied law), Miss Stanger was graduated from Boston Children's Hospital as a registered nurse. She returned to the Cape to live in Orleans, where she became one of Robert's closest human friends. Illustrator Cathy Baldwin, another friend and neighbor of Robert's, graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design.

Gold Gato, February 19, 2014 (view all comments by Gold Gato)
This is a sweet story and one that can be enjoyed by all members of a family. The narrative of the birth and upbringing of this personable little quail reminds us that, contrary to everything we believe, humans are not the center of the universe. There are other creatures who have as much empathy and love as we do, perhaps more. The narrative is simple, written without ego, and the reader is able to learn the story of this extraordinary bird.
