For parents and teachers who enjoy sharing culturally significant and brightly illustrated stories with today's youth, this fable offers heritage, tradition, and magic. Deep in the lush forest, Leopard is t at all content with how he looks. He wants to add some pizzazz to his plain yellow coat, so when his friend Tortie the Tortoise suggests he go see Peacock, he leaps at the idea. Once Leopard arrives at Peacock's he realizes that his t having spots is the least of their worries. Peacock is in a bit of a fix, which provides Leopard a chance to be a good citizen. Kindness brings kindness in return-just ask the leopard; it's how he got his spots.
