Inspiring gentle folktale set in Ancient Ethiopia. Breathtaking watercolors dramatize ancient Ethiopia's contrasting pastoral charm and majesty. Illustrations are rich with Ethiopian details. The story reinforces the values of generosity and selflessness over greed and self-centeredness. Includes glossary of Ethiopian terms and pronunciations. "Araujo's straightforward style is well suited to the simplicity of the story. Li's delicate watercolors mesh well with the text ... illustrations sweep across the pages. The hyena ... sparkles with mischief." -- School Library Journal
