WINNER of the Georgia Picture Book Storybook Award. CHILDREN'S CHOICES FOR 1987, by Internat'l Rdg. Assoc. and Children's Book Council. THE READING TEACHER, Oct 1987. Children's Choices: Tillie's good-natured rhyming parrot turns sour when he thinks he's been insulted, but he regain his perch when a burglar threatens. Children's comments made clear their appreciation of the delightful drawings and the "funny talking" parrot. SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL: The brief text flows along smoothly for reading aloud or for independent reading. Zaunder's watercolors on white backgrounds have the cartoon and lightly humorous quality of Quentin Blake's drawings. A successful if not outstanding picture book. AKRON BEACON JOURNAL, 6/22/86: Brennan Demuth has skillfully used rhymes to tell a very humorous story. Max, the Bad-Talking Parrot is fast-paced and entertaining. It could easily become a children's favorite.
