About the Book

Jackal Buzzard lives on top of Table Mountain where the wind makes it nearly impossible for him to fly and gather food. One very hungry day, Jackal devises a plan to convince the animals on the mountain to dance with him, offering them a free ride on his back to get away from the dusty wind. What quicker way to get a meal, so he thinks, not realizing that observant Cousin Monkey has watched his every move. What happens next surprises Jackal Buzzard and the reader with a heartfelt lesson woven into the lyrical prose of Mrs. Dasent's delightful retelling.
