In this traditional Ethiopian tale, a faithful, longtime slave asks his master to free him. The master replies that he will free the man once he has spent the night all alone and naked on a mountaintop in the freezing cold. In despair, the slave asks the help of a wise old man who, through an act of friendship, helps him outwit the master. The simple text and evocative illustrations bring this universal story to life. A portion of royalties from The Fire will be donated to the International Board on Books for Young People.
