The Leopard's Drum: An Asante tale from West Africa
Osebo the leopard has a fine, a huge, a magnificent drum, but he won't let anyone else have it- not even Nyame the Sky-God. So Nyame offers a big reward to the animal who will bring him the drum...The story of how a very small tortoise outwits the boastful leopard is retold by Jessica Souhami in this traditional tale from West Africa.
Perfectly suited for children 3 to 8.
