1) Montgomery, Sy. Snowball: The Dancing Cockatoo. 2013. Bauhan Publishing. Paperback: 64 pages. Price: $15.00 U.S.
SUMMARY: This is the true story of how an unwanted cockatoo achieved international fame as a YouTube sensation (more than 5 million hits!), television star, and scientific study subject, all by rocking out to the beat of his favorite tunes. Snowball tells the story with his own spirited psitticine spin. But everything he says is true, including how he inspired the World’s First Bird Dance-Off Contest, became the subject of a groundbreaking study about music and the brain, and has now gone into teaching children how to dance and doing charity work.
