How the Parrot Got its Colours

By: Emilie S.
Switzerland, Age 9

This little Parrot had no colours, so one day he met a girl, who asked him, “Why don't you have any colours?”

“I don't know, but I really would love some! Can you help me?” asked the Parrot.

The girl said, Come with me.”

The girl found her painting colours, and then she asked, “Which colours do you want?”

“I want, red, blue, green and pink,” said the parrot.

“Thank you very much,” said the Parrot. “Now I do look very beautiful.”

Now all the Parrots have beautiful colours.
