The Cheetah Who Wouldn't Run by Agi Kiss

On the plains of9780988201101 East Africa, a cheetah named Aesha raises her cubs, working hard to feed them and protect them from harm. At night she sings songs to teach them about the world around them and what it means to be a cheetah. Every year, with each new family, she names the biggest cub Kubwa (Big), the smallest one Ndogo (Small) and the fastest one Epesi (Swift). But every now and then a cub comes along who wants to know everything about everything. Aesha names that cub Mjuvi (Cheeky) and does her best to keep it out of trouble. This year, it seems, that is going to be especially hard!
