The peacocks of Palos Verdes are very special--beautiful and loud. In this picture book we meet Palo, a little peachick, and watch him grow up. Palo is petrified when he and his sisters are attacked by a wild coyote. He thinks that the fear he felt that day will never leave him. Palo’s mistaken, and as he grows into a peacock, his courage and quick thinking save many lives.
