Newcomer Beryl Blake finds it difficult to fit in at her new school and make friends. It gets worse when she is wrongly accused of stealing a peacock brooch from one of her classmates.
Later, Beryl goes to a fortune teller, who warns her that there will be trouble and sadness for her over a brightly coloured bird that is not hers. To offset the bad fortune because of the bird, the fortune teller gives Beryl a whistle that has the power to charm birds. But Beryl is to use it with good intentions because the birds will sense it if she is using the whistle for angry reasons.
