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.

Nice supplement to Indian history. The story is fine, the illustrations are wanting.
