From Our Editors

Prewitt was a wild peacock who had no pride in himself because he lacked the glorious tail feathers characteristic of his breed. But then his scraggly tail began to sprout character; it grew and grew until it turned into a horrendous mask...However, all's well that ends well' and Prewitt's 'tail' is a happy one.
