Tota the parrot was very green. When he realized that all his classmates at the new school were blue jays, he began to get a little concerned. Being shy by nature, he was not very keen about the fact that his green body would stick out like a sore thumb among the uniformly blue class. So, he devised a plan. Every morning, before setting out for school, he would take a dip in a little tub that was full of blue paint. Then he would sun himself for ten minutes, so the hot rays would dry up the paint. Thus, he passed off for a blue jay in school.
One day, unfortunately, it rained. As the raindrops fell down steadily, the paint trickled down Tota’s body. Soon, green streaks began appearing on his still-somewhat-blue self. Eventually, however, all the paint was washed off, and Tota was as green as ever. Tota began crying in desperation. Some blue jays were angry because they would now have to deal with a foreigner in their midst. Most of the other blue jays loved Tota and couldn’t bear to see their friend in trouble. The teacher, Ms. Peahen was at a loss.
Ms. Peahen said to her students, "Tota is your friend. Just because he is of a different colour doesn't mean that he is an enemy like the wolf and wild cats. He is kind and caring, and he always plays with every one of you. He tries to make friends with you, but you turn him away! There is no reason for this. He is a very nice bird, so we all must be friends with him..." These wise words of Ms. Peahen clung to the young blue jays, and from then on, everyone of them joined in playing with Tota in the sky and the trees...
Ms. Peahen told the blue jays that poor Tota didn't have any friends and he was a shy bird.Then all the blue jays became his friend.
She will explain to them that he wanted to be them like them.
She made a plan to drop green paint all over the bluejays and then put blue paint on Tota. Then Tota made fun of them and they could feel it. After that they said sorry to Tota and all lived happily ever after.
Ms.Peahen told the blue jays he is not a ememy to us like the cats eagles and other he is a trustworthy friend.
