I have read most of this series, if not all this series. I felt the characters had more depth than usual. The addition of the parrots and the owl are great additions and hope are both used in the future stories.
Savannah has plans to go to book exhibition and Rags is to accompany her. On the way Rags meets parrots and the parrots decide to go with Rags. The book sale is moving along okay when Rags disappears and he was seen near a vent to the blocked side of the building. Later a street urchin informs Savannah that a strange woman dress all in black is carrying Rags and left the area. Is Rags still in the building or has someone kidnapped him? I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK AND SERIES.
