The true story of Fred the Peacock, who got his own Facebook page, has been turned into a children's book and illustrated by 8 year-old Nikki Christensen.
Fred's story is both remarkable and poignant, and has the extra resonance for Americans, as Fred died on 4th July.
The book is bright, bold and lively, with Nikki's illustrations and finishes with a happy ending, as well as a photograph of Fred.
We wish Nikki and her family well with the book, and the message of hope it brings.
