THAT QUAIL, ROBERT by Margaret A. Stanger
This little non-fiction book is just wonderful! It tells the story of how Dr. Thomas Kienzle and his wife found an abandoned quail egg and brought it home and set it on the kitchen counter. Amazingly the egg hatched! Dr. Kienzle and his wife didn't expect the tiny little bird to survive but survive it did! In fact, it thrived! They named the little bird Robert. Robert had a mind of his own and refused to ever be set free into the wild. This book is so charming with the many adventures of Robert including the fact that eventually Robert laid an egg!
If you are an animal lover you will absolutely adore this book!
