A vain peacock named Limelight Larry is excited to be in a book that is just about him, but before long, several of his animal friends begin poking their heads in to see what is going on as Limelight Larry tries to get them to go away.
When you’re a peacock, you love the limelight. It’s what you do. Especially when you’re as handsome as Larry. Unfortunately, Larry’s book has made his friends intrigued and they decide to join in. Larry finds himself getting a little too cramped and decides that sharing the page with his friends is not what he had in mind for this book so he forces his way front and center only to find his actions have left him feeling alone and scared. This book is silly and light-hearted. Regrettably, Larry isn’t the greatest of role models as he doesn’t quite learn his lesson in the end.
