Reviews

"A brilliant tale of environmental stewardship. The stellar illustration and clever story twist keep us smiling as we explore the very serious human failure to preserve space for our animal friends. Shelve this with 'The Lorax' by Dr. Suess."
- L. Russo, Amazon reader


This heart-warming and delightful story will intrigue and interest children while it charms their parents. It is a pleasure to see a children s picture book that is exciting and amazing yet accessible and accurate. Always Blue for Chicu captures the life and spirit of this fascinating parrot and the saga of his finding a home with people who understand his needs.
Dr. Joanna Burger, author of The Parrot Who Owns Me
In her beautifully illustrated Always Blue for Chicu, Karen Dugan captures both the pleasures and perils of sharing one s life with a parrot. Following Chicu on his wild ride through decades of ups and downs, one might think that these are the experiences of several birds rolled into one. However, many parrots actually live this long, have this many owners, and form complex and powerful bonds with people. Indeed millions of parrots do, and Dugan has skillfully brought this truth to light in a gentle, fun, but always honest manner. This touching and hopeful tale will capture children s imaginations and win their hearts; I highly recommend it for animal lovers of all ages.

For anyone who knows, loves, and understands a parrot, this beautiful story of Chicu s journey will tug at your heart. Karen Dugan s insight into the souls of parrots is evident both in her story and in her illustrations. This is a book I will treasure.
