Long ago and far away, in a rambling garden beside a clear blue lake, two flocks of birds began to fear each other for their differences.Their fear grew, and soon the birds became enemies, hoarding great quantities of weapons to protect themselves--until panic struck and the chance for peace seemed lost forever.This haunting modern fable reminds readers that with each generation there is renewed hope for understanding and lasting peace.'Beautifully illustrated, the message is appropriate and necessary for children of all ages.'--Children's Book Review Service
