dc.description.abstractThis is one of a boxed set of 30 fable books by Usborne, 32 pages in length, 5" x 7¾". This booklet is on the first level, and the text is appropriately simple. It is a "pourquoi" story telling how the leopard got his spots. In the beginning, all the animals had light, sandy skin. Giraffe and zebra went into the forest and, in the dark, developed dark patches and hid in the shadows. The man and Leopard bump into them in the dark and ask how they developed the patches. "Watch!" They take a few steps and then vanish. The man quickly learns how he can use the shadows. "What about me?" asks Leopard. The man uses his hand to make fingerprints that help Leopard to camouflage. The booklet finishes with puzzles and answers.en_US
