Things are looking bleak for the weaker animals in the jungle. The stronger animals are intimidating and brutalizing them. Smart Tee the tortoise is a victim. He lives in fear, and usually locks himself indoors to avoid the dreaded elephant. One day, after a particularly humiliating experience, he devises a way to stop the bullying He pitches the unsuspecting elephant against the hippo by challenging him to a Tug of the Rope. The elephant eagerly accepts, and is taught a lesson in mutual respect. Amaka Ikejiani of Nigeria has been putting together the Smart Tee series for many years. "I have a very deep connection with the tortoise, Smart Tee. It was a form of escape from the unbelievable atrocities in my country then. It offered me peace and comfort in the midst of chaos. The morals of these stories probably molded who I am today." She adds, "I strongly believe in the revival of traditional tales that teach morals. I am convinced that they equip modern children with the wisdom and insight needed to cope with everyday challenges." Publisher's website: http: //sbprabooks.com/AmakaIkejiani.
