Six years after the parrot Louella joined the Wilson household in "Eddie's Pay Dirt," she reappears again in a zany mix-up that, oddly enough, isn't of Eddie's engineering. Eddie loans out Louella for the tropical decorations for a ball at the hotel in town. A confused doorman, however, lets Louella and 10 or 11 other parrots out of their cages to hang them on the chandeliers. In the scramble to get the parrots back in their cages, the doorman gives the wrong parrot back. A wonderful tale ensues with crisp and enchanting illustrations.
