Beautifully depicted in collage-illustrations with a visual edge, this traditional African fable emphasizes the importance of sharing. Baby Baobab may be the tallest, greenest tree, but he is also boastful. Sun warns him not to be so vain, but Baby Baobab ignores him and is rude to the insects and animals that wish to settle on his branches. Sun is angered by the little tree's unwillingness to share and decides to teach him a lesson by turning him upside down and burying his beautiful branches underground.
