Based on a traditional African folk story, John Steptoe's Mufaro's Beautiful Daughters was named a Caldecott Honor Book in 1988. Manyara and Nyasha were as different as two sisters could be. When the King announces that "The Most Beautiful and Worthy Daughters in the Land" are to compete for his hand, both selfish Manyara and dutiful Nyasha make their way to the capital city. Who winds up Queen? A Very Fine copy in a Very Fine dust jacket.
