Thanks to an ugly little warthog, both the plain and the beautiful jungle animals learn that the physical trappings of beauty are not as important as cooperation and considerate behavior.
Ngiri, a small, ugly Warthog, was sick of being teased. Wise Nyumbu, an old Wildebeest, lent him magic bongo drums and Ngiri drummed up a change. What happened was quite unexpected. Traits of one animal had been randomly attached to another, except to Ngiri. After several attempts the whole community was in an uproar. What would they do on the day of the Grand Parade? Terrific art, with hidden characters, add to this book's value.
