In WhipEye by Geoffrey Saign, the main character, Samantha, and her neighbor, Jake, get mixed up in an ancient rivalry between Samantha's best friend, Charlie, who is a parrot, and an evil man named Magnar. Magnar wants to kill Charlie because he is the last of his kind of creatures.

WhipEye is an exciting fantasy story that grips the readers' attention from the very beginning. The heroine, Samantha Green, is a strong but loving and caring girl. She developed courage and strength as the story moved forward. The parrot, Charlie, is intelligent and loveable and extremely loyal to Sam. Sam also has a strong loyalty to Charlie. The nemesis, Magnar, is established as an evil guy right from the start.  Magnar's evil focuses on Charlie who is over 1000 years old (unknown to Sam & Jake).

In WhipEye, Samantha starts off being just a quiet, sad girl who talks to a parrot to let go of her feelings. Little does she know that her life is going to change because of that. Charlie (the parrot) starts talking to her one day; he says that she has to rescue him, or the owner of the pet shop (a very bad guy who captures other animals like Charlie and uses them for his own power) will kill him. When she takes him home, the boy next door finds out and wants to help.
