A joyous tale for children offering warmth and certainty, affirming the boundless nature of parental love

Kind Mrs. Owl is asked by proud Mr. Peacock to take his child's lunch to school. "How shall I know," she asked, "which one is your son?" Mr. Peacock laughed and preened himself. "Just give it to the most beautiful child there," he said. With a deliciously satisfying ending, Mr. Peacock learns his lesson. Gloriously colorful, packed with birds of every hue, Papas's energy for life sings out of every illustration.
