Editorial Reviews

Among the most celebrated, acclaimed, and recognizable voices of the 20th century, James Earl Jones performs this vibrant folk legend from Kenya’s Maasai people. A rabbit’s house is invaded by a vicious monster, who won’t let anyone inside. A jackal, leopard, elephant, and rhino all try to rid rabbit’s house of this unwelcome visitor. In the end, a crafty frog, small and unassuming, succeeds where his larger animal friends could not.

Performing this brain over brawn bush tale, Jones brims with bemused bewilderment and curious intrigue, lending a unique voice to each of the puzzled animals as they ponder the solution to their unusual predicament. Jones’ versatile voice lends effortless authenticity to this Maasai myth, his silken baritone sundering atop a backbeat of African drums.

Publisher's Summary

In this humorous Masai tale, Rabbit can't get into her house because "The Long One", hiding inside, threatens to trample her just as he tramples elephants. A solution comes from an unexpected source.
