"Wolf Erlbruch’s illustrations add something special to Rafik Schami’s entertaining and touching story." Harald Kiesel, Süddeutsche Zeitung
It all begins when Mum and Dad can’t agree on what pet to buy. Dad doesn’t want a cat and Mum doesn’t want a dog. Lina knows what would be perfect for her: a parrot. But no-one asks Lina. In the end, they do end up getting a parrot, on the pet-shop owner’s recommendation. And when the parrot won’t talk, once again no-one thinks of asking Lina – even though she knows exactly why the bird is silent. But she can wait: sooner or later Mum and Dad will reach the end of their patience. Then Lina will explain everything to them.
