The hare thinks his special talents will help him accept the king's challenge. The fox, the leopard, and the elephant come forward too. But, to the smug amusement of the king and his councillors, all their efforts fail. Despite all odds the tortoise then takes up the task. Will he be able to achieve the impossible?

Tolowa Mollel's witty retelling of this folktale from Cameroon comes to life in Kathy Blankley's illustrations, complete with borders in traditional Cameroon designs.
