Editorial Reviews

Zomo wants wisdom, but he must accomplish three impossible tasks before Sky God will reward him with the gift of wisdom. Is Zomo up to the challenge? He must use cleverness and trickery to obtain the scales of Big Fish, milk Wild Cow and bring Sky God the tooth of Leopard. The big bold illustrations are a perfect match for this engaging folktale.
