No. 6 : Be very OBSERVANT and notice something other Beings haven’t noticed.

Rose and Poppy and Nana and Saffron left the Tree of Wisdom and set out for their 6th Posarona.

They had decided to walk and they had decided to wear their “NOW YOU SEE ME – NOW YOU DON’T” cloaks.

Sometimes, its easier to notice things when things aren’t noticing you.

Sometimes, it is easier to notice things when you are walking quite slowly. And not chattering.

The POSARONAs walked for only a little while. They were passing a little cottage and outside they spotted this bunch of critters.

I will not tell you what they noticed. See if you can find it.

Next Posarona, they will be doing something about it.  Perhaps Poppy and her Detectives will do something before then.

Nana and Saffron and Rose and Poppy didn’t  let the Critters know that they had noticed anything at all. They just walked on. BUT THEY HAD NOTICED.




The POSARONAs had a very simple plan that was also quite  Remarkable.  They had heard that some of the Birds were very angry and upset about being called “BIRD-BRAINED”. They thought it was insulting.

The Posaronas had heard that many of the Birds were ashamed to be called “ BIRD-BRAINED”.

In fact, things were getting serious amongst the Birds.

The rooster had stopped cock-a-doodle-dooing.

The Pelicans were not filling their bills with anything. 

If the Birds did anything wrong, they would just say;

We can’t help it. We are just BIRD-BRAINED. We are not very clever at all.

Poppy and Rose and Nana and Saffron had been talking quietly to the Owl, the Swallow and the Duck. They had talked to every bird they could think of and invited them to a big meeting under the Owl’s Tree. THE TREE OF WISDOM.

The OWL is known everywhere as being very, very, very WISE. If a bird-brain can be THAT wise – then a BIRD BRAIN is a good thing to be have.

It was a remarkable meeting. The Birds listened and told their own stories and by the end, they all had T-shirts that said “ BIRD-BRAINED AND PROUD OF IT. “



I can fly onto a branch. I can can cock-a-doodle-doo.

That night, Nana and the Girls slept in the Guests’ Nests of the Tree of Wisdom. It had been a remarkable day. The Birds seemed to be proud to be Birds and the Bush was filled with Birdsong.  When the Girls and Nana had fallen asleep, Little birds fluttered up to them and covered them with the very best feathers that they could spare. Good Night, Posaronas.
