The seaside town of Isla has many stories, the most notable being the legend of the Seafaring Parrot. Other stories surround a boy named Pablo, who had washed up on shore in a blow-up swimming pool as an infant with only a lavender parrot Birdy as a companion. Could Birdy be a Seafaring parrot? If she is, then she will be able to tell Pablo the true story of where he came from? But, if she is, that also means the second part of the Seafarer myth is true…that Seafaring Parrots will, eventually, fly away.
