The story of how birds got their colors, beautifully told by Vlasta van Kampen through her vibrant watercolor illustrations.

When Mother Nature first creates the world, the birds are colorless. Soon all the birds assemble and monkeys paint them, making each one beautiful and unique.

When they are finished, there is a wonderful celebration. Into the middle of the festivities flies one small bird. He has got lost on his way and arrives to discover there are only two pots of paint left--one with a drop of brown and the other with a drop of gold. The duck has a wonderful idea. Into the little bird's mouth she lets fall a single drop of gold paint. When the little bird opens his mouth, out comes the sweetest sound!
