The Lovereading4Kids commentEight witty short stories about how Mmutla, the clever little hare, outwits the other animals. In The Great Tug-of-War, Mmutla challenges both Tlou the elephant and Kubu the Hippo to a tug of war. Both are sure they can win against the puny Hare. Little do they know who they will really be competing against! Clever Mmutla skips out of the way just in time. Mmutla pulls similar stunts in the rest of the stories always delighting with a little harmless cunning that keeps him out of danger.
The Great Tug of War by Beverley NaidooWhen you have Ntsu, the Eagle soaring high in the sky looking for her supper, and Tswhene, the Baboon vowing to throw you off a cliff, you need all the tricks you can think of. Mmutla, the Hare tricks Tlou, the Elephant and Kubu, the Hippo into having an epic tug of war. King Lion, Tswhene and Khudu, the Tortoise set out to teach Mmutla a lesson.
