Summary
A collection of twelve folktales from different parts of Africa. A fine collection of African tales, with each story preceded by a map showing its locale and a glossary of unfamiliar words. Annotation. Illustrated in full color. From Angola to Zanzibar, this treasury is as varied and bountiful as Africa itself! Master storyteller Verna Aardema retells 12 tales of justice and revenge, greed and generosity, sly trickery, and off-the-wall silliness with her trademark humor and flair. Nearly 50 illustrations vibrantly reflect the spirit of these read-aloud delights, while a map of Africa, story source information, and a personal note from the author make this a rich volume for folk-tale lovers of all ages. "Read this book once for the stories, twice for the illustrations, and a hundred times just for fun."
