One of twenty in the series, found near the counter as we were settling up a large order of books. The version of BF used here has the crow dress himself up very nicely in peacock feathers and then say this to his fellow crows: You all look dirty with your black feathers. Please avoid talking to me. When he comes back to them at the end, they reject him. Moral: Changing looks does not change the reality. Like the others in the series, this pamphlet features slick computer-generated art on its sixteen pages. Here, however, the depiction of the crow is particularly well done. He becomes a beautiful peacock-like crow until the peacocks break his artificial feathers. The cover gives a good sample of the good artistry here.
