This review is from: The Perfect Orange: A Tale from Ethiopia (Toucan Tales Series ; Vol. 2) (Hardcover)
This fable is common throughout Ethiopia, Eritrea and surrounding countries and the author choose this Ethiopian version to write.
The wonderful images along with simple beautiful text which includes some Ethiopian words is just lovely.
It tells the story of a orphan girl Tshai, her selfless gift to the countries ruler and the darstadly thinking of the wicked Jib. The telling is enhanced by the legend of Ethiopian pronounciations and all round is a lovely addition your library if like me you have an Ethiopian child in your home.
