Your Basic Budgie Book is a joy for any age group; a look at fictional little birds in various situations that are humorous and sometimes absurd and preposterous. Each small Budgie has its own short story, to introduce you to that individual bird. These small birds and their stories are captivating. Mickey Mapstone treats each character as a unique personality. You will feel empathy for each bird and their misadventures.
The idea of 'Mickey's Budgie's' was inspired by the author's first pregnancy. Her husband compared her to a Budgie, with her big belly and two spindly legs. When the baby girl was born she was instantly nicknamed 'Budgie' with her chubby body and spider-like appendages. This story inspired the creation of Mickey's Budgies, every one of them with their own quirky stories. Mapstone drew each bird with pastels giving each their own personality and inviting true love for these unique characters.
Reading the stories out loud to friends and family will create genuine laughter. You can't read just one crazy tale. These stories which come directly from the authors' spirited imagination, are addicting and will promise to tickle your funny bone.
