Bringing the Rain to Kapiti Plain

Author: Verna Aardema
Illustrator: Beatriz Vidal
Publisher: Macmillan

Ki-pat, a young African cowherd rescues the cattle he tends from the drought by shooting down a rain cloud. A rhythmic cumulative tale with a pattern distinctly reminiscent of The House That Jack Built. The strong and vibrant illustrations complement the pattern of the story.
