I read the first of what seem to be five extended fables. The peacock is ashamed that he has lost his glorious tail. His well-meaning little peachicks pick up his glorious feathers from around the bushes. The peahen happens to run into a Guinea Fowl who refers offhandedly to molting. Good news! His feathers will return. He can be proud again. That is the tale of a tail in some 16 pages. .
