Gabriel the umbrella cockatoo was hatched on December 13, 2008 to proud parents Samantha and Caspar Cockatoo. Author Alecia Houston is the pleased owner of the cockatoo family and says Gabby was a big surprise, since she had owned the pair of cockatoos for 14 years and there had been no other births. Four years before Gabby came along, Alecia had an aneurism and needed brain surgery. Afterward, she developed severe epilepsy and was no longer able to work as a veterinary technician. "It was devastating to me to not be able to do what I loved or any other job. As a result, I became very depressed. While Gabby, of course, was not a cure, he certainly made things better!" This wonderful children's book details Gabby's daily antics. "He does not allow me to get down on myself. He truly changed my life in remarkable ways. People do not realize how the comfort and support of an animal of any kind that you love can enrich your life!" Here is the true story of Gabby Cockatoo, what he has meant to the author, as well as her efforts to raise funds for animal rescue. Reading about Gabby's little tricks and talkative nature can bring anyone out of a bad mood. Author Alecia Houston wishes everyone could have the pleasure of spending one day with Gabby. The author lives with her husband and son in Columbus, Ohio, and is writing a sequel. Artist Lauren Luna is also from Columbus, Ohio. Her work has gained national recognition with showings in major galleries. Publisher's Web site: http: //www.strategicpublishinggroup.com/title/TheStoriesTrueOfGabbyCockatoo.html
