"In his original African pourquoi stories, Hadithi cleverly imbues his animals with human foibles . . . to offer humorous, entertaining, and just-maybe possible explanations for their unique animal behavior . . . Kennaway extends the simple text and dazzles readers with her bold, dramatic watercolors . . . A satisfying safari." —School Library Journal on Lazy Lion
"Bright watercolors capture the African setting and the alluring animal characters. Like the others in the series, this story shares a message in a convincing and entertaining manner." —Booklist on Hungry Hyena
"Has all the elements of a timeless fable." —Publishers Weekly on Tricky Tortoise
