About the Author:

Ruby Dee (1922-2014) was an actress and social activist. She was the author of the children's book Two Ways to Count to Ten: A Liberian Folktale.

Review:

“King Leopard is wise enough to plan for a successor: 'I must seek out the cleverest beast in our jungle. I must find one who is wise enough to rule well.' He plans a contest; the winner is to be named a prince and marry his daughter. Contestants must throw Leopard's spear up in the air and count to ten before it comes to earth again...The story is a strong one and will be an effective read-aloud.” ―Booklist

“The noted actress retells this lively, well-paced, and involving version of a Liberian folktale. Meddaugh's color-pencil and water-color paintings suit the text well. Readers and listeners of all ages will find this an irresistibly satisfying tale.” ―Publishers Weekly

“A clever tale about the jungle beasts learning to count, showing once again that being strong is not the same as being smart.” ―The New York Times
