A long time ago, when the world was quite new, a monkey sat watching the birds as they flew. Like feathery rainbows they flashed through the air. 'How come they're so pretty', he thought. 'It's not fair!' When a mischievous monkey discovers a paintbox, he has a brilliant idea, but things don't go quite as monkey has planned.
