SHALUKU's World Falls Apart?

A children's book


When the African village expands and its herds of cows and goats grow in number, SHALUKU - the guinea fowl, loses her nest and her eggs to the intruding shepherds. Other animals like the hares, squirrels, snakes and hyenas have similar stories. Ironically, after destroying the plants and animals, it is the village that finds itself stuck in a barren land. The village council takes responsibility in its attempt to reverse the situation.
