    Discovering a perfect orange in her Ethiopian mountain village, Tshai travels to the city to tender her prize to the great Nigus When the girl passes the house of the Lord Hyena, the jeering animal scorns her silly gift But the ruler himself is so moved that he tries to reward Tshai with riches When she refuses, Nigus orders his Royal Chamberlain to follow her and give her a donkey whose saddle bags are filled with gold and jewels The greedy hyena hastens to offer Nigus his bountiful lands and cattle In return, the wise Nigus bestows on the crafty hyena our most prized possession.The ancient Ethiopian folktale was retold by Frank P Araujo, who added some Amharic words and phrases to spice up the story Illustrations by Jun Li Xiao using contrast watercolor drawings of traditional Ethiopia.

    An Ethiopian folktale Tshai is an orphan girl and this is her story about her selfless, sweet gift to the ruler The Jib hyena is the greedy villain The book teaches the lesson about giving from the heart without wishing for something in return The artwork is pleasant and there are a few Amharic words, with pronunciation included, in the story as well Sweet and delightful, with a moral to the story that parents and adults will likely enjoy.

    Great tale from Ethiopia about humility and what should be cherished A bit strange about the treasure at the end, but as long as everyone is happy
