Reviewed by niennasiblings

A quick and fun read with excellent values.


When a talking parrot shows up in the backyard of Titus' grandparents, the Three Cousins Detective Club (Titus, Timothy, and Sarah-Jane) have to solve the mystery of who the parrot's owner is.


Justice and kindness are just a couple of the strong values upheld by the characters.

Spiritual Content

The book's point is to teach that it's wrong to misuse the name of God. The characters are Christians.



Drug and Alcohol Content


Sexual Content


Crude or Profane Language or Content

"Oh, my God" is said three times. This is condemned.


Though older readers may think this story a little boring, it's a great book for ages 5-10. With good characters, an upbeat pace, and wholesome values, The Mystery of the Tattletale Parrot is a book I highly recommend to the appropriate age group.

Fun Score: 5
Values Score: 5
Written for Age: 5-7
