Sleepy Cheetah, Hardback


This is the story of how Cheetah got her distinctive spots, and discovered that she could run as fast as the wind.

Long ago, Cheetah was sandy-coloured and lay snoozing all day on the Great African Plain.

There was no need to run to hunt because animals simply tripped over her.

But one day there is a fire on the plain, and all the other animals are fleeing.

Will Cheetah discover her speed in time? An African tale with a traditional feel, celebrating the speed and grace of the Cheetah.

The first book in the series - Greedy Zebra - was published in 1984 and the series has stayed in print ever since. Praise for the series: 'Their books are beautiful to look at and to feel, and perect for reading aloud.' School Librarian 'A delightful book.' Books For Keeps
