Note: 
Beautiful Yetta escapes from the kosher butcher shop and is lost in Brooklyn. Rude rats and blustering buses daunt her but when she chases a cat (“Gay ahVEK, du fahrSHTUNKehneh kahtz!”) that is stalking a parakeet, she is befriended by the entire flock of Brooklyn’s Spanish-speaking parakeets and is never lonely again. Pinkwater’s well-known humor is captured by his wife’s winsome illustrations and by dialogue written in English, Yiddish, and Spanish.
