  • Pablo is turning ten on the tiny island of Isla that in and of itself is not a big deal except that Pablo and his beautiful bright parrot mysteriously showed up on the island s shore in a swimming pool when he was an infant Birdy, his parrot, has never flown nor has she talked the way the other parrots do on the island Her unusual markings have gotten the attention of some who think she might be a rare seafaring parrot and scientists are on the hunt for her so they can lock her up to study her P [...]


  • Disclaimer I m a bird nut, so this fits me like a glove Anyone who uses the expression birdbrain in a derogatory way does NOT know birds Beyond that, this is such a charming story, loaded with distinctive and appealing characters in a setting rarely described, with relationships that are unique and and yet feel warmly familiar at their core The magical fantasy legendary portions of the story are well done and and may entice some readers of that genre to read a story firmly anchored in reality Co [...]

  • Pablo and Birdy was such a heartwarming read I loved how the Island of Isla served as a sanctuary for those fleeing from danger, humans or animals alike The quiet narrative has some poignant moments, I loved the pastry stealing dog There is also moments of delightful humor, the Committee made up of parrots was adorable Best of all, this story is a depiction of a quest the quest of a young boy trying to discover where he truly belongs and of the parrot who never leaves his side Could Birdy be a l [...]


  • Full of heart Made me feel all the things Slow to get started but finished strong FYI, for those who can t stand to read anything with the slightest hint of animal cruelty, there are a few pages of a dog remembering his not so nice owner But that s not the focus of the story Lovely Pablo and Birdy will stay with me for awhile, I think.


  • Nothing has touched my heart as deeply in a long time as Pablo Birdy Nearly perfect in its craft, characters, and story, it resonates with me on so many levels Ten years ago, Pablo washed up on the shores of Isla as a baby, in a child s inflatable pool, crisscrossed with twine, and a necklace of Dios me bendiga Accompanied by a parrot who can neither speak nor fly, Birdy will not leave Pablo s side Emmanuel took him in and raised Pablo as family in the little tourist town, along with Pierre the [...]

  • Sounds exist in vibrationsHumans, with their unexceptional ears, could hear a sound at only the moment it was made, and thereafter only in memory But not the remarkable ears of a Seafaring Parrot For them, all sound lived on for all eternity any given moment, a Seafarer could hear and reproduce all the sounds ever made So goes the legend of the Seafaring Parrot, which Pablo has grown up hearing, especially since his island thrives on tourism based on the legend Pablo and Birdy, his ever present [...]


  • So you know how Inside Out shows the point in life were we realize that our emotions are complex than we d previously been aware That there can be sadness and anger mixed into a happy life, even when we don t want to acknowledge them You can see that in this book, but in a way that s lovely and mostly happy and just that tiny bit heartbreaking fortunes lost and fortunes gained, traditions maintained and upset, silences preserved and broken, families unmade and made In Pablo and Birdy is an isla [...]


  • A baby washes ashore in a blow up pool with a parrot Luckily he lands on Isla, a place famous for caring people, birds and folklore As young Pablo grows he yearns to find out his real story, and the only one that can tell him, has never spoken However, the day Birdy starts to talk Pablo must keep it a secret to save his trusty friends life This cute tale is a fun and intriguing read for ages eight to twelve.


  • Pablo and Birdy is a delightful story with a few tears that touches on family, foster care, emigration, human animal relationships, and much The cover art is captivating and there are several illustrations inside This would make a great read aloud for middle grades and may it, please, become an animated film, exactly as it is written.


  • I started reading this aloud to my 10 year old, but we had to stop It was too painful for him He s adopted and this book really brings that loss of birth family to the forefront I finished the book on my own It s very well written It s bittersweet and a lovely story, but kids who have unknown biological histories may find it too much.


  • Lyrical, character driven tale Atmospheric, full of heart A beautiful, moving job with the universal theme of letting go of someone you love Loved the characters, loved the vivid descriptions of Pablo s life.


  • Geez, c2017 was the year of orphans washing up on islands in kid lit This is a beautiful, reflective story the relationship between Pablo and Birdy is a true love story The illustrations are gorgeous, and lend to the dream like quality of the prose.


  • This was a beautiful story I am a fan of magical realism anyway, but this tale of love and letting go was filled with such gentle tenderness, I know that Pablo and Birdy will stay with me for a while.


  • Letting go of anything that you love can be very hard Pablo blew ashore on Isla as a baby ten years ago, accompanied by a parrot who doesn t fly or talk Or does she Birdy is full of surprises as the winds of change begin to blow once again.


  • This was exquisite Pablo wants to know the truth about his family until he sees that his family is already around him A little bit of supernatural awe, plenty of parrots, a dog, and love I especially love the subtle nod to the refugee crisis.


  • If you read Beyond the Bright Sea, you should read this book Another story about the search for identity and the true meaning of family Another baby washed ashore Another mystery of who and why and how Plus, a mythical parrot and stray dog.




  • I didn t realize this was a children s book when I downloaded Still a cute book that filled a time when I needed a book.
