Mr. Martinelli, a good-natured pizza man, is amazed to see twelve green parrots – tropical birds – the electrical wires outside of his pizzeria in January. He feeds the birds a scattering of breadcrumbs, but the parrots snub his offerings: they want rice balls! Mr. Martinelli prepares the rice balls but the hungry birds refuse them. The Pizza Man and the Parrots is an unforgettable tale about misinterpretation and reminds young people the importance of careful listening.
