A mic century ex-library book telling the story of Eddie and his beloved Parrot from Texas, Louella, who one day is switched with another Parrot at a charity ball. The book is hardbound with 192 pages and was written and illustrated by Carolyn Haywood. It measures 9 inches x 6.25 inches and is in the condition you'd expect of an old library book, with soiling, wear, library marks, and a bit of color on page 81 from an enthusiastic reader. Even so, the overall condition is pretty good given that it's over 50 years old (the copyright date is 1959). A cute book and longer than most, great for baby sitting and sitting babies.
