Marcus and Mira fly all over the Talparo forest on a tiny island in the blue Caribbean Sea.
“Cra-cra-cra-aa. Craaa, craaa, craaa craaa,” they squawk.
Everywhere they go all the animals complain about the raucous noise. Yet Mira wants, more than anything else, to sing sweetly like all the other animals. What can she do? Who can help? Surely she can’t ask the King of the Forest?
Share in this beautifully illustrated retelling of the Caribbean folk legend of Papa Bois, King of the Forest, and how he changes the lives of parrots forever more.
