Lucky the Lorikeet

By Monica Engebretson
Illustrated by Melodee Strong

Written in 2004 and inspired by real events that took place in 2003 (see the real Lucky), the book tells the story of Lucky, a parrot who is captured in the wild and eventually regains his freedom with the help of a young boy. The story helps encourage children to be kind to animals without being didactic and gently awakens readers to the plight of captive birds.
