" Another great story from Jane Kurtz, demonstrating the value of patience and learning to love. Beautiful illustrations. " said.

" Her grandfather finds a clever way to help an impatient young Ethiopian girl get to know her father's new wife. Golden illustrations show Ethiopian culture and countryside. " said.

"The illustrations are quite lovely and very warm, but the story itself had some problems. I was a bit unclear about why Kibret was behaving the way she was in the story. If this is Ethiopian custom, that needed further explanation since I was fairly convinced we were dealing with a pretty horrible step-mother here. As for the grandfather suggesting that his granddaughter should learn to steal hair from the lion's tail, okay, it made a good story, but for crying out loud, shouldn't she be dead at this point? Comparing slowly getting a lion used to one's presence to slowly getting your step-mother to like you is, to put it mildly, a little disturbing, particularly since the story seemed to be realistic in all other aspects besides this. Maybe if a less lethal wild animal had been the focus (feathers from a bird's tail, maybe?), I wouldn't have received mixed signals from it. The students I was told to read it to were also confused." said.
