Once upon a time there was a little rainbow flower owl, she was so sweet in nature, that she smelled of cotton candy and pink musk sticks. Whenever she preened her feathers, and spread her little wings, they looked just like a rainbow in the sky. Perhaps you’ve seen her but imagined you only saw a rainbow. Her heart is also colourful and very rare. Should you ever see one in the forest, admire her from a distance and she will sing a song so pure. One must not try to capture her, for if you take her freedom she will quickly lose her colour. Beneath her wings and under each feather live the lady bird guides, she sends them out all over the world to bring a moment’s joy to humans who stop to enjoy the flowers, over which she is chief guardian. Little rainbow flower owl grows a flower from her feathers, each time a little child is born.
