Yetta, beautiful Yetta, manages to escape from the butcher’s shop. But now she is lost in Brooklyn—a strange place filled with rude rats and dangerous buses!
But then, brave Yetta saves a small green bird from a sneaky cat, and his friends, the wild parrots of Brooklyn, are very grateful.
Has beautiful Yetta found her new home?
Inspired by real events, this multilingual story is a witty, warm, and wonderful read-aloud for any age.
Recommended for ages three to seven.
