    I have read this book many times to my grandson, who is 6 He loves the story It is too advance right now for him to read on his own but one day he will This book encourages him to learn to read better because he says he wants to read it one day on his own The illustrations are excellent I will read and then comment on the pictures It will take you about 20 minutes to read

    I thought that this book was a classic African folk tale It s a modern allegory, and a bit disturbing at that I wish I had checked it out at the library and read it before purchasing That said, it is well written and the illustrations are vibrant and engaging But for me a picture book worth owning is one that my kids want to read again and again This will look pretty on our shelf,

    My husband is from Nigeria, so I was excited to get this book from Chinua Achebe for our daughter It s a fable not a fairy tale so the story line is a bit dark for a kid s book, but the illustrations are great and the connection to Nigeria is important for us Bought a version for our nephew as well.
