Van der Merwe, Penguin random house 2019 i don't want to be a hyena
Hyena believes that none of the animals like her. She thinks that if she changes her identity she will be accepted and liked. But Hyena doesn't realise that each animal has a unique set of skills and, no matter how hard she tries, a hyena can't become an elephant, or a lion, or a leopard. When she becomes despondent, the other animals, including her own hyena clan, rally around to point out the good things about being a hyena. Finally, hyena recognises that she doesn't need to become another creature in order to be accepted. All she has to do is be the best hyena she can be.
