MacKnight Black Says in “The Parrot Man” that Dreams Can Be Achieved

Oakton, Virginia, USA – WEBWIRE

With an impossible dream of one day becoming a talented baseball player, orphan Barney Ross has other major unfilled needs —social acceptance as well as positive recognition by people of all ages.

MacKnight has created a memorable narrative in “The Parrot Man: A Baseball Story” with a main character who will inspire readers to pursue their own dreams with good luck, liberal revisions, the support of others and the fortitude of the dreamer. After leaving the orphanage, Barney maintains his love for baseball by selling newspapers outside Griffith Stadium where the Washington Senators play and eventually entering it each day after completing his job.  It was at the ball park that he began his weird yells and chants in support of the Senators and became known as the Parrot Man.

This children’s book is not only for youngsters but their parents as well.  Indeed, it will absorb readers of all ages as they discover what The Parrot Man does on his ultimate chance at baseball glory. On April 13th-14th, 2019 the LA Times Festival of Books will give the readers a chance to buy a copy.

“The Parrot Man:  A Baseball Story” is available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Mascot Books.
