The king of the birds

Posted on December 11th, 2014
Retold by Joanne Bloch

The birds can’t agree who should be their king, so they decide to have a competition to see who can fly the highest. At the agreed moment, all the birds fly up into the sky. Soon it looks like Nkwazi, the great fish eagle, is bound to win, but little Ncede the Neddicky bird cheated to take the title! When Ncede returns to the ground, he gets a very different reception than the one he imagined!
