Good and Ready

Good and Ready (1997) Post 256

Good and Ready by Sally Odgers
Good and Ready is an easy-read story about the relationship between Grandpa and his parrot. The parrot flies into a tree and Grandpa calls it to come down. "Not till I'm good and ready," responds the parrot. Grandpa gets a chair, a ladder, a forklift, but he can't reach the parrot. Finally, he gives up and goes to get dinner. The parrot, no longer the centre of attention. taps on the window, wanting admittance and a treat. Grandpa responds, "Not till I'm good and ready!"

The goal for 2017 is to write a post a day profiling the background behind one of my books; how it came to be written, what it's about, and any things of note that happened along the way. If you're an author, an aspiring author, a reader or just someone who enjoys windows into worlds, you might find this fun. The books are not in any special order, but will be assigned approximate dates, and pictures, where they exist. If you enjoyed a post, or want to ask about any of my books or my manuscript assessment service.
