Inspired by reality

In addition to the feathers, the young people of the colony also lose “their strength and their joy” and become more aggressive as well as trying to indulge in cappuccino buttocks without asking for their opinion. As the reading progressed, it became clear that the parrot’s uncle, Spoonbill, could be the author of this color loss among the little ones.
There are some places in the body that are like a secret garden, they are called private parts and no one is allowed to touch them. “
“When I kiss the spatula, he touches me in places I don’t like … sometimes it hurts me … and when he forces me to do the same with him, I don’t like it at all.” Announced a young man from the Three Monkeys Colony.
The book reminds us to say “no”, even to someone in our family. The spatula parrot is finally judged by the chief of the tribe after a preacher has condemned the truth, followed by many more. The assailant also has gray feathers, evidence that he too was tortured as a child …
