Oh...so sweet...

One of my co-workers gave me The Perfect Orange, signed by the author--a hyena book I'd never ever heard of. It's so pretty! I'm all perky. Yay, mood swings :)

Let me guess, The Stereotypically Evil/Stupid Hyena gets killed in the end?

Here's the plot:
1) girl finds the perfect orange.
2) girl goes to give the perfect orange to local lord.
3) Ato Jib (King Hyena) makes fun of her for not having a better present.
4) Lord is amazed, and rewards her, though she tries to refuse, with a donkey loaded down with gold and jewels.
5) Hyena misconstrues situation, thinks that if the lord gives her all this for an orange, what will he give me for my land and cattle?
6) Lord is overwhelmed by the generosity of Ato Jib's gift, and rewards him with his most precious posession
7)...which is the perfect orange.

It's a nice story, and "Greed" is a pretty reasonable thing to foil a hyena with...if you want a good story with a happy ending about a hyena, you *must* read Pundali, the beautifully-illustrated story of a clever striped hyena.
