High in the sky, a hawk circled and searched. Then quick as an arrow, he dropped to the ground.
To little Kitoto, each day brings constant danger. Even his search for food can end in disaster, especially when the sharp-eyed hawk is looking for his breakfast, too. Then Kitoto has an idea. If he could find and make friends with the most powerful being on the Savannah, he would never have to be afraid again. His journey leads him to amazing places and a very remarkable discovery. With his usual wit and humor, Tololwa M. Mollel sends a mighty message to those who might seem weak or small.
