Description
Drawing on fables she heard as a child in her village in eastern Nigeria, Ifeoma Onyefulu presents ten stories of spirits and crafty animals for readers 8 to 12. In one tale, the greatest wrestler in the world gets his comeuppance when he challenges a ghost; in another, a tortoise tricks the other animals so that he can win the Great Eating Competition; the title story concerns a girl whose arrogance proves to be her undoing. Onyefulu includes some words from her native Igbo language, translated into English, and her characters are depicted in Julia Cairns's charming line drawings.
