Published June 15, 1972. In the beginning, all the animals lived as friends. Their king, the leopard, was strong but gentle and wise. Only Dog had sharp teeth, and only he scoffed at the other animals' plan to build a common shelter for resting out of the rain. But when Dog is ooded out of his own cave, he attacks the leopard and takes over as king. And it is then, after visiting the blacksmith's forge and knocking on Thunder's door, that the angry leopard returns to regain his throne by the menace of his own threatening new claws. In a riveting fable for young readers about the potency and dangers of power taken by force, Nigerian writer #ChinuaAchebe, author of THINGS FALL APART, evokes themes of liberation and justice that echo his seminal novels about post-colonial #Africa.

Two great talents Achebe and Lyons have joined together to create a unique and gorgeous book that fuses photographs, poetry, and text to create a view of present-day Africa that moves beyond the stereotypes commonly held by most Westerners. #chinuaachebe #richardlyons

"Some people flinch when you talk about art in the context of the needs of society thinking you are introducing something far too common for a discussion of art. Why should art have a purpose and a use? Art shouldn't be concerned with purpose and reason and need, they say. These are improper. But from the very beginning, it seems to me, stories have indeed been meant to be enjoyed, to appeal to that part of us which enjoys good form and good shape and good sound" -Chinua Achebe Born: 16 November 1930 Nigerian novelist, poet, professor, and critic.His first novel Things Fall Apart (1958) was considered his magnum opus, and is the most widely read book in modern African literature.

When old people speak it is not because of the sweetness of words in our mouths; it is because we see something which you do not see. ____________________ #chinuaachebe
