The Parrot and the Merchant Pippa Goodhart
Mah Jahan is a rich merchant who travels far and wide to trade her goods, and keeps countless colourful birds in cages. When leaving for India, she promises to bring back gifts for all her servants, and for her favourite talking parrot. All that the parrot requests is for her to go to the jungle, greet his friends and ask if they have any messages for him. But when she delivers their message to him, she learns an important lesson about how to treat the ones you love.
