Munchie is a mischievous but lovable chartreuse parakeet who lives with red-haired “Grandmommie,” as her grandchildren call her. Munchie has spent his life inside as a pet, but one special day, he gets to go out on the patio while Grandmommie gardens. There, he becomes more enamored with the majestic blue jay.
The blue jay is Munchie’s favorite bird. He loves their brilliant blue wings and stark, white breast. Blue jays are unmistakably brave, are scared of nothing, and appear to have appointed themselves leaders of the backyard birds. Yes, Munchie wants to be just like a blue jay. He dreams of joining their ranks and flying free from Grandmommie’s back porch.
When his dream of freedom comes true, though, things aren’t quite as wonderful as Munchie imagined. He causes Grandmommie great worry and finds unforseen danger at every turn. However, during his grand adventure, Munchie also learns a very important lesson about God’s plan for him and about the love of a best friend.
