Text and Images from The Peacock Who Wished to Fly – Peacocks Tale
Tausi, the Peacock
was a kind and
He lived in peace with
all the other birds.
But Tausi had a dream.
Instead of pecking at the ground,
he wanted to fly to faraway lands.
He wished he could see all
the beauty of nature for himself
But Tausi, the Peacock couldn’t
even travel far in search for food.
Some naughty birds mocked him.
They left him alone whenever
they went in search of food.
Tausi the Peacock thought to himself, If I am a bird, then I should be able fly.
Why don’t I have wings like other birds?
