How the Guinea Fowl Got Her Spots

By Barbara Knutson
Illustrated by Barbara Knutson

A folk explanation for the guinea fowl's protective coloration that enables it to hide from its natural predator, the lion.

The Guinea Fowl and Cow are best friends. Both of them keep an eye out for Lion. When Lion threatens, each must intervene to save the other. Beautiful watercolors transform this tale into a visual delight.
