Jabuti: A Trickster Tale from the Amazon This trickster tale from the oral tradition of Amazonian rain forest peoples, presents an account of how the tortoise got his patchwork shell and the birds their colours. Jabuti, renown for his sweet flute playing and mischievous pranks, becomes the victim of a jealous vulture who tricks him into riding on his back to a music festival in Heaven. Bold, dramatic illustrations in brilliant colours bring the simple text to life.
