Synopsis

The Hyena and the Monster by

The trees in the jungle have mysteriously disappeared! Does the legendary monster really exist? Four Tooth the hyena rushes to warn his friends, but they do not believe him. He then decides to teach them a lesson. Just when he thinks his plan worked, Four Tooth finds himself in danger! Will his friends help him or is this the end of Four Tooth? Inspired by the Chinese idiom, (hu jia hu wei) which is often used to describe people who bully others by boasting of their powerful connections, The Hyena and the Monster gives interesting twist to this idiom, and teaches young readers essential lessons about friendship. This entertaining story, filled with wit and humour, will enthral readers of all ages.
