Summary (From the publisher):

A story set in Eritrea (based on a traditional tale) about a boy who keeps getting into trouble. His father finds the solution: a gebeta game. When Tekleh seems not to be able to stay out of trouble, his father gives him a gebeta board. While Tekleh spends the day caring for the goats he encounters several groups of people. He trades his game, first for a knife, then a musical instrument, a drum, a bag of corn, and a papaya. Finally he trades for another gebeta board. When he returns to his unsuspecting father, his father is convinced that the game has sheltered his son from harm.
