PRLog - Nov. 19, 2009 - Tortoise's wish to soar with the birds skyrockets this tale right into the hearts of children. The Birds are famished, and they are searching for sweet fruit. Their hunger drives them to make an unusual pact with Tortoise: "If you guide us to a place where the fruits are plentiful, we will agree to teach you how to fly." Tortoise is eager to start his newest adventure. After he glues bird feathers onto his shell, he climbs onto the back of one of the biggest birds and takes off in search of a meal. Tortoise is true to his word. He guides the birds to a rich and fertile field. As the Birds prepare tasty bundles to enjoy at home, greedy Tortoise prepares the biggest bundle of them all. Follow the adventures of Tortoise, the Birds, and the many other amazing characters that grace Oduwole's fables. You will treasure the savannah, the jungle, and the underwater settings that decorate this delightful collection of original African tales.
