Description

A young girl brings home a peacock, but he refuses to show off his colorful tail! Inspired by the life of Flannery O'Connor.

In this picture book, inspired by the life of Flannery O'Connor, a young fan of fowl brings home a peacock to be the king of her collection, but he refuses to show off his colorful tail. The girl goes to great lengths to encourage the peacock to display his plumage -- she throws him a party, lets him play in the fig tree, feeds him flowers and stages a parade -- all to no avail.

Then she finally stumbles on the perfect solution. When she introduces the queen of the birds -- a peahen -- to her collection, the peacock immediately displays his glorious shimmering tail.

This delightful story, full of humor and heart, celebrates the legacy of a great American writer.

Includes an author's note about Flannery O'Connor.
