Peacock loves to talk about…himself! But while Peacock boasts, his animal friends help one another. 

Inspired by the saying Actions Speak Louder Than Words, this entertaining tale transports young readers to the tropical lands of India to meet a boastful peacock who learns that to save the day (or egg) he must put his words into action. The message is one of gentle encouragement to do something positive that would make a real difference, as sometimes our actions are more meaningful than our words alone.
