How the Leopard got his Claws
In the beginning, all the animals lived as friends. Their king, the leopard, was strong but gentle and wise. Only Dog had sharp teeth, and only he scoffed at the other animals' plan to build a common shelter for resting out of the rain. But when Dog is hooded out of his own cave, he attacks the leopard and takes over as king. How the angry leopard will return to regain his throne?
In a riveting fable for young readers about the potency and dangers of power taken by force, Nigerian writer Chinua Achebe, evokes themes of liberation and justice that echo his seminal novels about post-colonial Africa. Glowing with vibrant color, Mary GrandPré's expressive and action filled paintings bring this unforgettable tale to dramatic life.
