Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2-A talented, colorful parrot mimics the sounds around his apartment. From the ring of the alarm clock to the whoosh of the washing machine, he soon grows tired of repeating the same noises and wonders what his own voice sounds like. One morning, he flies out of the window and into the vast world, where he discovers enchanting tones deep in the heart of the Paris metropolis. They range in size from the deep rumbles of a ship to melancholy notes of a cello. Readers will rejoice when Harold finally finds his voice ("Rawk!") and gains flocks of new friends, along with a new self-awareness and confidence. In the end, he still enjoys partaking in his apartment's din, but his own squawk makes him the happiest of all. Dicmas's debut has beautiful, bright, and vivid childlike illustrations. Scenes of the city streets and skylines are scattered throughout, while Harold's owner-a little girl in a striped sweater-blends vaguely into the surroundings. Storytellers will enjoy acting out the noises and children will giggle at Harold's kooky expressions and poses. Perfect for storytimes.-Krista Welz, The North Bergen Public Library, NJα(c) Copyright 2013. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.

From Booklist

Harold is a parrot in Paris. He lives in a nice apartment with a view of the Eiffel Tower, and he loves to imitate everything he hears: the alarm clock, coffeemaker, toaster, cell phone, TV, vacuum cleaner, and, especially, the sounds of the dryer whooshing and the toilet flushing. But this is a parrot with a problem. He is tired of mimicking the same old sounds, so he escapes through an open window and—voilà!—he is flying through a symphony of street sounds. In fact, everything seems to have its own voice—except for Harold. When he first tries his natural voice (RAWK!), he is horrified. But other parrots soon surround him, clapping their wings for his excellent sound. The domestic and street sounds that fill Dicmas’ debut book make it both an engaging and funny read-aloud (and mimic-aloud), not to mention an entrée into appreciating the world of sound. The message about finding your own voice has a wonderful vehicle in this comical parrot. Preschool-Grade 2. --Connie Fletcher

This book is a joy to read with my girls. Not only do we all appreciate that Harold is searching for his own voice, the voices that he imitates have us all squawking and buzzing and dinging throughout. Fun and beautifully illustrated. I look forward to reading more from Ms. Courtney Dicmas. aCAW!

This book is a real treasure!!! I just received it as a gift and read it to my 9 month old son as a bedtime story. Despite him being very tired and hungry he stopped nursing to laugh at all the imitations Harold makes. Of course Harold's own voice got the biggest laugh of all! I have yet to find a more enjoyable read to end our day with!!!!!

Bought this book for my daughter who is a teacher. Plus... I happen to know the author/illustrator! So when I had the chance to visit my daughter's classroom and read the book to her students, IT WARMED MY HEART!

Wishing Courtney all the best and hoping there is a sequel in the works for Harold!
