The Hyena’s Tail is the second in a delightful new series of illustrated children’s stories, set in the African bush. Called “Tales from the Waterhole“, they are stories told by an old terrapin, who overheard them while sitting at the edge of the waterhole.
Written by Max Hoppe and illustrated by Jeannine Dickie.
Harry and Henry, the hungry hyenas, discover that just because an animal looks small and helpless, it is not always easy prey! Manny the Mongoose and Gilbert the Ground Squirrel come up with a crafty plan, to make sure Manny doesn’t become their next meal!
The book features an illustrated checklist at the end to help children identify African wildlife they may encounter on game drives.
