Book Review By Brittany Perez (Oh My Bookness )
October 8,2015

"Sammy Steals the Show" is a delightful story about a Cockatiel, named Sammy. Sammy exudes confidence and with a voice that transcends levels even when there are grey skies. You can hear his voice turn the stormy skies into blue and storm clouds into a beautiful white wisps.

 Sammy met Lisa at a pet store,  he was with his siblings and frrinds. There was something about Lisa that she fell in love with him and his voice at first sight.

Once home with Lisa, Sammy loves to sing and is always happy and friendly with everyone. One day they were watching a music competition and he wanted to be in it but did not want to tell lisa. Lisa loved the Bird and who knows if she would took him or not if that was such a strong passion if his. Instead he went behind Lisa's back with help from other birds, outside birds to go. He lied to Lisa.

In Sammy Steals The Show, there is a lesson to be learned. What if Sammy was honest with Lisa about where he was going? What he wanted to do? Would thing e dedicated differently for the two of them? 

The illustrations through the book help compliment the story and build up on it. The illustrations alone help to tell the story but the words strengthen it as one unit.

What others are saying about the Bird Brain Books by Emlyn 


Poppy the Proud: "Poppy the Proud has so many great lessons in it - including teaching children that everyone is special and beautiful in their own way. The writing is perfect for the younger age set, and
 the beautiful illustrations by Sarah Shaw will help keep your little one engaged. My 5 year old loved 
it and reading Poppy brought about a conversation about bragging, friendship, and being special." – Karen Toz
Courtney Saves Christmas: "This book is so stinkin' cute. My kiddos loved it. The illustrations [by Noelle Giffin] are fun and really captivated my 4 and 5 year old. I love that Courtney's adventure began because she wanted to say, "thank you." What a great message to send during the holidays. I have a feeling this book will be read long after Christmas has come and gone." – Delphina “Delphina Reads Too Much”
Vicky Finds a Valentine: “This children's book is so cute and really let's young children know what being friends is all about. The illustrations, done once again by Noelle Giffin, lend a nice touch to a great book. This book is for the younger set up to about 9 years old. I highly recommend this book to be in any child's library. Both thumbs up!” – Naila Moon
