The Mean Hyena: A Folktale from Malawi - Sierra, Judy

In this popular trickster tale from Malawi, Judy Sierra retells the story of how Kamba the tortoise gets his revenge when Fisi, the mean hyena, sticks him between two branches of a tree. Kamba's solution is to paint all the animals beautiful new coats--except Fisi, who gets a coat of tree gum which makes his fur stand up in patches. Full color.
