One day, Little Mo found an injured little bird in her backyard, and she spent all her time nursing the bird back to health. They quickly became friends, so when it was time for the little bird to take flight again, he didn’t want to leave without someone to keep him company.
Little Mo’s father came up with a great idea: since Little Mo couldn’t go with the bird, they’d make a friend for him that could fly. Little Mo and her father immediately set to work, creating and painting a bamboo bird friend.
As the bamboo bird and little bird took off into the sky together, the bamboo bird seemed to have a truly magical quality. It was able to change shapes, and eventually became a kite, soaring through the sky, while always keeping the little bird company.
