The Little Brown Jay: A Tale From India Retold by Elizabeth Claire adn Illustrated by Miriam Katin, explores how unselfish acts can bring great joy. The illustrations are a major key to opening up the reader's eyes to the Indian people. After reading the folktale, the reader can enjoy some informative facts on the Indian culture and its history which is accompanied by photographs.
A beautiful princess with an ugly voice makes a wish to have the beautiful voice of the plain brown bird so the blind prince may hear her. When the plain brown bird trades voices with her and is stuck with her ugly voice, she makes a wish for the brown bird to have the beautiful color of her blue scarf, and so the plain brown bird becomes a beautiful blue bird.
