This is the story of how Cheetah got her distinctive spots, and discovered that she could run as fast as the wind.
Long ago, Cheetah was sandy-coloured and lay snoozing all day on the Great African Plain. There was no need to run to hunt because animals simply tripped over her. But one day there is a fire on the plain, and all the other animals are fleeing. Will Cheetah discover her speed in time?
An African tale with a traditional feel, celebrating the speed and grace of the Cheetah.
