I DON’T WANT TO BE A HYENA

Your Baby & Toddler - - BOOKS -

by Avril van der Merwe R95

Hyena is un­happy. She wants to be loved, like Ele­phant, and ad­mired, like Lion. How­ever, her ef­forts to turn her­self into first an ele­phant, and then a lion prove hi­lar­i­ously un­suc­cess­ful. Lion sug­gests that since Hyena has spots like a leop­ard, per­haps she could be­come Leop­ard in­stead. This at­tempt is also a funny fail­ure. In­stead of putting her down, the other an­i­mals then start nam­ing her strong hyena qual­i­ties and en­cour­age her to be all that she was born to be, much to the re­lief and de­light of Hyena’s own pack.
