Bad Company - The Parrot said


    The traditional tale of the 'Farmer and the Parrot' is retold through rhyme and illustrated by the artist/author. The book has 24 pages with 23 full colour illustrations and 21 x 21 cms. saddle bound. "Following an early spot of bother I ran home in tears to receive further rebukes from my mother; but my Grandfather comforted me and told me the story of the Farmer and the Parrot. From then on if he saw me on the street with 'the gang' or coming in late from playing he would raise his finger and repeat, Bad company!” Robert Mountjoy's grandfather had received the story while attending Sunday School sometime in the 1900s. He had taken on board the direct message in the tale and this was stressed some fifty years later. In rewriting it for his grandchildren the author has made some changes to make it acceptable to children and parents today.
