About the Book
The Cockatoo and the Cat is a heartwarming story about overcoming adversity through understanding differences. It tells the story of a pet cockatoo who is upset by the addition of a cat to her family. The cockatoo is fearful of the newcomer’s reputation as a bird chaser and, more importantly, wonders why she alone isn’t enough for her family. At the same time, the cat struggles to fit in to a world that appears to be dominated by a loud bully of a bird. They eventually learn to use their differences for mutual benefit and discover that there is always room for one more.
