Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2014 Fall)
Princess Penelope is given a parrot that, despite the princess's threats and name-calling, refuses to speak. When rich--and eligible--Prince Percival comes calling, however, the parrot regains its voice and gets its revenge. The tongue-in-cheek starchiness of the text is well met by the hyperbole of the illustrations of Penelope and her unrestrained extravagances. A downloadable audio version is available on the publisher's website.",,"Picture Books",,,,,,,,,,,110279,,,,
