Like a Bride

I mentioned "The Butterfly Ball" before, well, this time it's "The Peacock Party". How beautiful is that creature, peeking demurely over his shoulder like a bride displaying her wedding dress and train to the gathered guests?

I have a copy of "The Butterfly Ball", but unfortunately not "The Peacock Party" since a fire destroyed many of my favourite books a few years back. I can't even find the words online, which is a shame - I very much remember the image of the Eagle, which I drew a few times as a kid. It was a bit spooky, but not as much so as Old Blind Mole in "The Butterfly Ball" - he was creepy.
