When 12-year-old Saba™ and her brother are kidnapped and taken to the emperor’s palace, they live the life of royalty. But as Saba discovers secrets about her family’s past, she realizes she and her brother are pawns in a violent struggle for Ethiopia’s throne. Saba must summon her courage and faith to save both herself and her brother from the "hyenas" who want to destroy her family.

After she is kidnapped and taken to the emperor’s palace, 12-year-old Saba’s worn and ragged clothes are replaced by finery fit for a princess. The brilliant embroidery on her soft cotton dress matches the embroidery on her shamma, the traditional Ethiopian shawl. Saba’s sturdy leather sandals, called berebaso, were given to her by a soldier on the trek from her home to the capital. And though Saba now wears gold to signify her royal blood, her silver cross necklace—a gift from her beloved grandfather who raised her—means more to her than all the gold in the world.

As the struggle for the emperor’s throne rages throughout Ethiopia, Saba must unravel the secrets of her past and face her fears in order to save herself from the power-hungry “hyenas” bent on destroying her family.

Your 9-inch Saba™ doll includes a stand and Saba: Under the Hyena’s Foot paperback book by Jane Kurtz.
