About This Book
Zomo is a very clever rabbit, who asks Sky-God for wisdom. But Zomo must accomplish three difficult tasks — collect scales from Big Fish, milk from Strong Cow, and a tooth from Leopard. Is Zomo really clever enough to accomplish the nearly impossible?
Simple, rhythmic language and dazzling art influenced by African design combine to bring this traditional West African tale to life.
"The tale moves along with the swift concision of a good joke, right down to its satisfying punch line." — Publishers Weekly
"Wildly exuberant, full of slapstick and mischief, this version of an enduring Nigerian trickster tale, featuring a clever rabbit, is a storyteller's delight." — Booklist
