A heart wrenching children's story. A little girl comes across a malnourished cheetah cub caged at the back of a small shop in an Arab souq.
Her mother agrees to buy the animal to save its life, and the little girl rears the cub at their house until it grows into a fine young cheetah.
The cheetah and the girl are inseparable friends, but they know one day he will need to return to Africa where he can roam free.
Beautiful illustrations flow throughout the narrative and bring this enchanting tale to life.
