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.
