Hare and the Princess


The Princess wants to be married by a clever, wise person. The test is that he should be able to drink hot boiling water. Many men, young and old, rich and poor, try their luck but cannot drink the boiling water. Then comes Hare. He discovers a trick by which the water can be made cool. The Princess accepts him on account of this cleverness and marries him. This is a traditional African tale retold expertly by Nyambura Mpesha, the foremost of East Africa's finest writers for children.
