In a transposed Gilded Age, a miracle Parakeet, Flute, falls in love with the style of an entrepreneur, dancing, and eventually the lovebird of his life.

FLY BY FLING is a fantasy of the Gilded Age of America transposed to modern times. It fantasizes around an amazing Parakeet, named Flute. Flute absorbs information like a sponge absorbs water, and has the unique ability to communicate to the animal world as well as to humans. Flute becomes family to the wealthy Vanderbird family of Newport, R.I., eventually emulating their style of living, culminating with a dance party he calls his Fly By Fling.

Wonderful reading. Suggest for both children and adults alike. a fantasy that blends in life and love with just a hint of realism. Suggest reading anytime during the day but especially at bedtime to insure "pleasant dreams".

"Imaginaation is wonderful: it makes a cloudy day sunny, has the bees seeking honey---" and as I started reading your book, I "imagined" myself as a "bird". I loved it. We should have more stories like this, ones that are a delight to read, that brings you laughter, and even happy tears. I'd certainly rate it as excellent. Good luck to you both. Dottie

This is a most enjoyable book to read, suitable for all members of a family. I particularly liked the humor in the naming of the human characters. I found the book insightful, humorous, really enjoyable. It is a very pleasant love story as well.
