Tales of Africa


Folk tales hold a particular enchantment as they are told and retold over centuries. This delightful collection of five stories by Margaret H. Tredgold lightly captures the humour, morality and wisdom of African myth and legend.

The Horned Animals dance at the time of marulas and shame the intrusive Hyena, Tortoise outwits Hare, and Duiker learns a hard lesson about bad luck. We discover how Shato, the snake is responsible for humans growing old, and how greed takes people nowhere.

Children and adults will be captivated by these tales which will echo in the minds for years to come.
