The Runaway Injera is a bilingual Ethiopian fairy tale about a freshly baked injera that springs to life and taunts the hungry people from whom it runs away. The story begins with a woman baking a batch of injera, but as she attempts to move one to her basket, it jumps out of her hands and rolls away. Before she can stop the injera, it rolls out the door and all over town! Several people call out to the injera trying to stop it, but the stubborn injera keeps on rolling until it comes across a group of three clever girls who outsmart the injera and eat it. This fun, playful tale uses repetitious lines, which creates an interactive component for children during story time.
