In a lush and bountiful woodland, teeming with magnificent wildlife, lives one vain and jealous peacock. Oh, how he adores himself, his beautiful feathers, so elegant and vibrant. Surely, he should reign as the most beautiful in the land, should he not? He ponders, and plots, and plays with some ideas to ensure that he indeed has no competition from the many magnificent birds of the forest. A devious plan is set in motion . . . one where he will be the most colorful bird in all the land. But at what price?
This is a delightful story about a very vain peacock who sets about ensuring he is the most beautiful creature in the forest, but is the end result worth the price he pays? The book is well written and the illustrations are gorgeous, plus there's a good lesson to be learned. Highly recommended.
