“Tortoise’s Wings” is an illustrated compilation of three children’s stories. “The Tortoise’s Wings” is a tale of friends working together to achieve a common goal, even if the goal remains out of reach. “How Hare Tricked Hyena” is a dark story about choosing lies, deceit and money over friendship and honest work. “Why the Cat Stays at Home with the Women” is a curious story that seeks to explain the domestication of the cat in terms of a violent progression of allegiances from one animal to the next, all the while looking out for its own safety.
