9780773730199: Kitoto the Mighty

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.

About the Author:

Tololwa Mollel is a children's author, dramatist and storyteller. He grew up in Arusha Tanzania at the times when oral tradition was still alive and well. Tololwa has written over sixteen books using traditional folklore as their basis. He has worked as an actor and university theatre instructor in Tanzania and Canada, and as a writer-in-residence for the Edmonton Public Library. His books include award-winning titles such as Orphan Boy, Rhinos for Lunch and Elephants for Supper!, Big Boy, and My Rows and Piles of Coins. His books have been translated into various South African languages and into Korean. He lives in Edmonton, Alberta.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3?A traditional tale with a new slant. Kitoto, a mouse who lives on the African Savannah, looks for a force strong enough to protect him from a hawk. The river sends him to the sun. The sun informs him that the wind is more powerful, but the wind tells him that she is not mighty enough to move the mountain. The mountain tells him to search for the creature "who chomps away at my root." Kitoto enters the mountain and is surprised to discover Kigego, a little gray mouse who promises to teach him the secrets of the ground, as Kitoto will show her the secrets of the Savannah. Like Eric Kimmel's version of this tale, The Greatest of All (Holiday, 1991), Kitoto challenges readers to decide how greatness might be measured. While Kimmel tells of a father who seeks the best husband for his daughter, Mollel's mouse is a weak male who seeks the most powerful being and finds a female who epitomizes the essence of strength?one who performs the tasks necessary for survival. Frost's illustrations capture the warm colors of the African Savannah, its topography, and its animals. The close-ups of Kitoto and the personified elements of nature are exceptional. A wonderful retelling that may help young girls who lack confidence in their abilities to meet daily challenges.?Marie Wright, University Library, Indianapolis, IN
