“King Leopard is wise enough to plan for a successor: ‘I must seek out the cleverest beast in our jungle. I must find one who is wise enough to rule well.’ He plans a contest; the winner is to be named a prince and marry his daughter. Contestants must throw Leopard’s spear up in the air and count to ten before it comes to earth again…The story is a strong one and will be an effective read-aloud.”
