***** Review *****
Three wicked pirates have been terrorizing the land, leaving the people poor and desperate. They seek out the help of their friend, the wizard, who is old and wise.
He read about a magic peacock who lived on a star.
This peacock sang special songs when it flew,
Tunes that defeated evil, and wicked pirates too.
The wizard calls upon the peacock, who can sing a magical song.
The entire book is set up in rhymes, with an AABB rhyme scheme to engage young readers, as well as colorful and vivid illustrations. A great book to use for beginning conversations about sharing and not stealing with children.
But the legend lives on and the story is often told,
About the pirates who were defeated by feathers of gold.
