so
the
penguins
and
the
peacock
agreed.
He
would join them,
and
together
they
would
achieve
great things.
23
And
At
first
everyone
was
delighted.
The
penguins were pleased
and
impressed
with their
new
recruit.
He
stood
out
from
the
crowd
in
the way he
sparkled
and
displayed
flashes of
color
every
now and
then.
24
And
Perry
was
pleased, too,
with
the
novelty
and
the
newness.
He
was
impressed
by
the
penguins
they
looked
so
important
in
their black
and
white suits,
especially
when they gathered together
for
meetings
and
company events.
Their
formality
and
manners
were
so
different
from
anything
he had
ever seen
or
experienced
before.
25
N
ow
the
peacock
was
careful
in
the
beginning
not to
display
too
much
of his
colorful
nature.
You
see, some friends
in his own
land
had
warned Perry about penguins
They
had
cautioned
him
about
the
rules
and
the
style
with which
the
penguins
governed
their
land.
26
So
he
kept
his
feathers
folded
up
much
of the
time,
and
would only occasionally
flash
them open
to
dazzle
the
penguins
with
the
full
range
of his
talent
and
color.
