Who is King? : And Other Tales from Africa Hardback
Illustrated by Piet Grobler
All kinds of animals feature in these ten sparkling stories from all over Africa, by an award-winning author and illustrator.
Find out what happens to Lion when he challenges Elephant and discovers who is the real king of the savannah; laugh along with Tortoise as he bewitches the animals in Leopard' s work-party with his irresistible music; find out why Hippo has no hair, how Elephant got his trunk, and why Cockerel crows.
Then read about the woman who had a mouse-child! The stories are drawn from the rich folklore of Ethiopia, Ghana, Nigeria, Tanzania, Malawi, Lesotho, Zimbabwe and South Africa, and are perfectly matched by Piet Grobler' s wonderful illustrations.
