Mufaro's Beautiful Daughters: An African Tale
Winner Description: 
by John Steptoe, and published by Lothrop
Winner Blurb: 

Steptoe's glowing palette captures the brilliant hues of the dense African forest in a time long past where everyone agreed that Mufaro's daughters were very beautiful.  In the classic folktale tradition, gentle Nyasha justly earns the title "Most Worthy and Beautiful" and becomes queen in spite of temperamental Manyara's deceitful actions.  The hot light of day and cool shadows of night mold the regal figures, accenting facial expressions and lending a mystical aura to a noble story.
