At least that’s what the rock hyrax (or dassie) looks like to us; to the African eagle, it looks more like lunch. Sister dassies Mimbi, Pimbi and Timbi are heading out into the world to build their own homes, and … well, you know the rest of the story. The enchantment in Brett’s version comes from the trademark intricate design of her characters and page borders.
Follow Brett’s touring bus (pictured) to Woods Cross High School to meet one of the treasures of American picture books.
