Why the Sky is Far away free pdf Once the sky was so close that people could reach up and break off pieces of it to eat, but they wasted so much that the sky grew angry.

First printed as a picture book in 1974, this delightful Nigerian tale is presented here with revisions and colourful new illustrations, giving a modern feel to this classic story. For ages 4 to 8.
