Book Summary

'Too often, the picture that we get of African countries is a bleak one, and we see little of the joy and humour which is so immediately and strikingly evident to any visitor to that part of the world.' Alexander McCall Smith From the wild plains of Sudan to a village in Cameroon, this collection of stories gathers together folk tales from many different African traditions. Over forty stories are narrated in a lively, conversational style and accompanied by vibrant colour illustrations. Discover how man lost his tail, puzzle over riddles, and meet a variety of animals from the lazy rabbit to the wicked leopard. These magical tales are ideal read-aloud bedtime stories for children aged 7 and up, or for older ones to read to themselves.
