This fourth volume in the Animal Tales series is another of Betty Misheiker's charming stories about animal behaviour, which also explores bravery and the importance of clear thinking, for children. When faced with an unexpected danger, Nyati, the baby buffalo who is the hero of this story, remembers everything about being a courageous and clever buffalo that his uncle Boo, the powerful and wise old buffalo, who has always kept his herd out of danger, had taught him. Nyati not only shows his astuteness but he also manages to protect his closest friends from imminent danger.
