Synopses & Reviews
When her teacher assigns a report on animals, Ellie is stumped about what kind she wants to research. Then a neighbor goes on vacation and asks Ellie to pet-sit for her parrot, Alix. Perfect--exotic bird it will be! Unfortunately, Alix flies the coop...literally. But when Ellie can't lure him back on her own, it will take clever teamwork from a librarian, a zookeeper, some good friends, and Ellie's own pet-obsessed family to save the day.
A brand new package and launch for The Ellie McDoodle Diaries in paper-over-board!
