Citizen Parrot: Tunde, a boy of about five years old has a parrot which he is so fond of. He keeps her in a metal cage outside their house. The parrot repeats everything that Tunde and his friend say. Tunde feeds her very well and enjoys, along with his friend, the company of his parrot. Because of the particular behaviour of the parrot and Tunde’s love for her Tunde calls her Citizen Parrot.

His father has given him his word; “If you do well in your school work, I will make your birthday party a big one”. Tunde takes second position in his class and now his party will be a big one. He invites friends and well-wishers to attend his party. The party turns out to be a very celebrated one, with so many gifts.
