Hello Moges the Lion!  Moges the Lion joined the Tales of Ethiopia team Labor Day weekend when we labored to meet some literary deadlines!  His first job? Find us an illustrator who will paint him beautifully!  Moges is a working lion father that takes great pride in his cubs, one is pictured above.

Moges the Lion traveled from Alatish National Park located in Quara woreda of Northern Gondar  – that’s a mouthful – in northwestern Ethiopia to Washington, DC.

 

Moges the Lion ROARS a hello to Tales of Ethiopia readers! ROOOAARRRRR!

His family lives along the Alatish River that flows from Ethiopia to Sudan.

We say a cheerful goodbye to Dawit Daniel the Ethiopian Wolf who leaves team Tales of Ethiopia and soon joins the children’s book series by Carol Young: Brinkley: CIA Special Operations Kitten.
