Kuku the chicken and Mwewe the eagle have been the very best of friends their entire lives. But one day, vain Kuku rips her favorite dress and begs Mwewe to let her borrow a needle that is also a family heirloom. Mwewe lends her friend the needle, trusting her to care for it like the cherished possession it is. But when Kuku carelessly loses the needle, Kuku and Mwewe's life-long friendship comes to a sad end. A wonderful fable inspired by an old Swahili legend, this story will teach children the importance of taking responsibility for their actions.
