Oloyou the Cat, the very first creature that the God-child creates, is also the very first friend. God-child and Oloyou play together for hours on end, until one day the cat falls into the void and lands in the dark, featureless, sea kingdom of ferocious Ok#65533;n Ar#65533;. Oloyou is terribly lonely until he meets Ar#65533;'s mermaid daughter and falls madly in love. Infuriated, the father flings the pair into the heavens, where they become an everlasting part of the night sky. This imaginative tale, sparked by the author's mesmerizing text, is the perfect introduction to the vibrant Santer#65533;a/Yoruba culture.
