The Great Tug-O-War


Listen to the story:

‘The Great Tug-O-War’ by John Agard, illustrated by Korky Paul

Theme; A familiar fable showing how brains can outwit brawn.

Brainy, bouncy Brer Rabbit tricks Hippo and Rhino into staging a tug-o-war contest against each other. When the contest ends in a dead heat, Brer Rabbit tells them “friendship is longer than rope”.
