This is another story about Gaston the dog, Gregorie the parrot, and their master Mr. Marceau. They live in a small town in northern France, and the dog and the parrot enjoy taking their walks around the gardens, searching for peaches, and going places with their master to make them happy. In the eighth book in this series, the pair go with their master to the annual ‘take your pet to the zoo’ day, and wow did they enjoy their zoo day. One of their treats for the day was to check out the parrots kept at the zoo. And as the two spotted one certain parrot, Mr. Marceau knew they had found a new friend. Gregorie and Gaston had fallen in love with this little birdie so much that their master knew he would have to take it home. But what about a name? And how would they handle a new parrot friend?

I love these little stories by Jackie Ferrell, and the amazing illustrations by Scott Ferrell. Gaston and Gregorie are such fun pets, and it is amazing that a dog and a bird can get along so well, even well enough for the bird to ride on the dog's back! There is so much in this story it is impossible to describe it all, so this is a very good reason for you to download your copy. I love how Ms. Ferrell writes these three characters into a warm and loving family. I have gotten to know these characters so well that I think about them as people, instead of pets. This is a story that your child will love to add to their e-book library. They will forever be asking you to read the story to them, and the unique and wonderful illustrations created by Scott Ferrell are so well thought out and drawn that they will not take up a lot of space on your e-reader.
