The book is about two parrots with very different backgrounds. Sam grew up in the wild and Fonzy was raised as a companion by humans. Somehow fate brought them together and they developed a strong friendship that changed both of them. The book was based on an actual fact. One of my lorikeets, Lily, flew away one day when I was cleaning her cage. She returned home three weeks later with a stray lovebird that she adopted as her own. What boggles my mind is the fact that Lily was hand raised. Her survival in the wild and her return home safely is something I still can't comprehend. Not only that but she made a friend that she insisted stays with her.
