Don Gilet narrates 'The Great Tug of War', which is set in Africa. Mmutla the Hare tricks Tlou the Elephant and Kubu the Hippo into having an epic tug of war. King Lion, together with Tswhene the Baboon and wise old Khudu the Tortoise, set out to teach Mmutla a lesson. However the clever Hare is always one step ahead. 'The Great Tug of War' was written by Beverley Naidoo and illustrated by Piet Grobler.
