Eudora Welty's only book written for children, the charming story of a shoe-store parrot named Arturo and his many feathered friends


When Arturo the Parrot, whose job it was to help greet people as they came into The Friendly Shoe Store, picked up and repeated a small boy's disgruntled comment, “Shoes are for the birds!,” it certainly changed the course of his life. This is Eudora Welty's only book specifically written for young readers.
