Brian, a blind child, gets a parakeet for his eighth birthday. He teaches Scratchy to talk and allows him to fly around the house, calling on his grandmother when help is needed to find his pet. His older brother Kevin is very supportive, but like many children, sometimes forgets to shut the door. One day the bird gets out, but fortunately, he only flies to a nearby tree and with Kevin's guidance, Brian is able to coax Scratchy onto his finger and back to safety.
For ages 5 to 9.
