Kita loves walking on the dusty red road. Mama tells Kita not to make red dust clouds. Mama says if the red dust cloud grows, it will become a Dust Eater. Dust Eaters swallow little girls in one big bite. Kita doesn’t think that story is true. Mama just doesn’t want her to get her pretty dress all dirty with the red dust. One afternoon, Kita learns what Mama is talking about. Kita has a Dance with the Dust.
