Great Tug of War
When Mmutla the hare tricks Tlou the elephant and Kubu the hippo into having an epic tug-of-war, the whole grassland is soon laughing at their foolishness. But big animals dont like to be laughed at - especially by little animals. Soon King Lion, Tswhene the baboon, and the wise old tortoise Khudu set out to teach Mmutla a lesson. The hare is clever, but can he hop away from the comeuppance Tswhene has planned for him? Or is he too smart for his own good? Set against the vivid backdrop of the African savanna, these witty retellings by acclaimed childrens author Beverley Naidoo delight young readers while offering parents a fascinating glimpse into the origins of an American classic. Piet Groblers quirky, appealing illustrations underscore the narrative's wit and charm.
