6 reviews for Pete The Cheeky Parakeet

  1. Jon

    Easy rhythmic flow to the ryhming with a moral theme throughout, all backed up by colourful, catchy illustrations.

  2. Linda

    A delightful story with an important message. The story was enjoyed by everyone I read it to.

    We are now shouting out ‘Pete’ at the Parakeets which fly over every evening.

  3. Sheila

    I have read the book, I was very impressed. I read it to several children who were engrossed and seemed to like the rhyming. I love the idea in the story about being friendly to everybody. He started off as a cheeky parakeet and turned out really nice in the end, like a lot of the children that I’ve looked after, including yourself. I am proud to know you.

  4. Lisa Hardy

    I loved this book. It is very well illustrated and the book itself written in rhyme. It is also very funny and I can just imagine the giggles coming from your little people.

    As with any good children’s book, there is a moral to the story. When bad turns good. This helps you realise the consequences of your actions. I think this story will really help your young person understand about the consequences of right and wrong, all with the help of this cheeky parakeet!

    This is a great book throughout, not just in the writing and illustrations but also with the most important message that the tale gives you at the end.

  6. Jo – Tea and Cake for the Soul

    Pete the Cheeky Parakeet is written by Cheryl Lee-White and illustrated by Stephanie Jayne released by Blue Falcon Publishing. It is lightweight paperback that is a little over A4 size making it easy for children to hold the book themselves and turn the pages.

    The illustration on the front cover is enough to entice children in for the story and the pictures throughout are fun and colourful.

    This rhyming story focuses on Pete the pet parakeet, who is rather nasty to everyone except mum. Children will love the toilet humour of how he pecks on the bum and tries to poop in hair.

    However, Pete becomes sad when mum goes away for work leaving the family to have fun at home. The children decide to give him a second chance. He apologises and changes his ways to become part of the family. The story has a good moral stance as well as being fun.
