"Mufaro’s Beautiful Daughters" by John Steptoe

"Inspired by a traditional African folktale, this is the story of Mufaro, who is proud of his two beautiful daughters. Nyasha is kind and considerate, but everyone – except Mufaro – knows that Manyara is selfish and bad-tempered. When the Great King decides to take a wife and invites the most worthy and beautiful daughters in the land to appear before him, Mufaro brings both of his daughters – but only one can be queen. Who will the king choose?"

Here are the following pages that you will receive with your kit!
