Moonhag and the Monster Monkey
On page 121 of Kubuka & The Magic Calabash the main character, who is a vervet monkey, starts to explain how he came to be friends with a hyena. But Kubuka doesn't get the chance to finish the tale. Readers later asked me to tell them how the story went.
This is for them.
This is also for you, if you haven't read Kubuka & The Magic Calabash. If you like this short story, I hope you will go back and buy the book, which was written for older kids, as well as for those adults who love Africa and animal stories.
