Description

This exciting collection of traditional African folk tales introduces you to a host of interesting people and unusual animals. Eighteen authentic fables, recorded as they were told by tribal members of Nigerian and other cultures, range from the imaginative “Story of a Farmer and Four Hyenas” to an entertaining account of “The Man with Seven Dogs.”
In “The Magic Crocodile,” you’ll meet a reptile with very strange powers, while “The Boy in the Drum” teaches a valuable lesson in the importance of obeying one’s parents. In “The Hare and the Crownbird,” a fine, feathered friend is rewarded for its acts of kindness. You’ll also learn why a ram has a large head and a tortoise a small one in “The Greedy but Cunning Tortoise”; and in “A She-Goat and Her Children,” you’ll discover how a clever animal managed to provide food for her children.
Set in large, easy-to-read type and enhanced with Yuko Green’s 19 lively illustrations, this collection of time-honored folk tales will delight readers of all ages.
