This is a picture book collection from Rwanda. At one time all of the children in this book lived on the streets.

Reviews of The Skin of Lions: Rwandan Folk Tales and Fables by Gabriel Constans

Ali Anthony Bell reviewed on Jan. 19, 2022

Nice, but too short. Folktales and stories told by children of an orphanage in Rwanda. It just gives us a taste and left me unsatisfied.

Amazing short stories by teenagers. A glimpse of African literature with life lessons.
