The magic bojabi tree

The magic bojabi tree

Hofmeyr, Dianne, author; Grobler, Piet, artist

Python has wrapped himself around the melon/mango/pomegranate tree with its delicious fruit, and he won't share the fruit unless the animals can tell him the correct name of the tree. Elephant, Monkey and Zebra each in turn visit Lion, who alone knows the name of the tree. But every time, the animals forget the name on the journey back to the tree. Then Tortoise, the slowest, smallest animal goes to Lion - and sings a special song to remind him of the name. It is the bojabi tree! Python unwraps himself from the trunk, and all the animals share a feast
