Miss Mockingbird and the Proud Peacock is the first e-book in Deborah Anderson’s delightful children’s series, The Adventures of Miss Mockingbird. The story begins with Mr. Peacock becoming increasingly proud, due to his handsome looks and astounding skills, which attract the attention of many admirers. When he tries to impress his date with extravagant bragging, Miss Peacock is not impressed. The insightful Miss Mockingbird is a wise observer and a gentle teacher in the story. When Mr. Peacock’s vanity overtakes him and he spends too much time in the sun, a tragedy occurs, which results in being a blessing in disguise.
The humorous and clever rhyme is reminiscent of the style of Dr. Seuss. Jessica Crysallis’ masterful artwork beautifully illustrates the story with exquisite attention to details. Accompanying audio with music, comical character voices and sound effects bring the story to life, making this book a unique and classic treasure. Miss Mockingbird and the Proud Peacock artfully teaches the value of humility as it simultaneously entertains.
Once there lived a proud peacock,
who loved to spread his feathers.
He posed and preened and so he thought,
there was no peacock better.
His feathers were both long and wide,
he saw them as amazing.
Exotic colors, subtle shades,
caused others to start gazing.
When lady peacocks walked on by,
he’d shout, “Come look at me!
I’m the most handsome, gorgeous bird
in all the world, you’ll see!”
On a date with his peacock mate,
he bragged about himself,
“I am the greatest bird of all,
so great there’s no one else!”
Lakeside, he crowed even more,
“Best peacock in the land!
Stay with me and then you’ll see,
the brilliance that I have!”
