How many feathers will it take? The Little Angel of Freedom can't wait till her wings are full of feathers. Then she'll hear a bell ring, and be able to fly. But to prove she's ready, she has to help out Simone, a little girl with a big problem. Simone likes to capture animals -- especially bugs. Sometimes they get harmed while they're in her care. The Little Angel has to use her powers to show Simone the right thing to do. But Little Angel's worried -- how will she rescue the captured animals? And will she ever get enough feathers to earn her Angelwings at last? Be kind to animals!
