Who is King? by Beverley Naidoo and Piet Grobler

Image 2What a great book! By Beverley Naidoo and Piet Grobler.

Ten brilliant stories from across Africa with illustrations throughout that give a real feel for the story even before you read the words.

There’s a Zulu tale called, Unanana and One Tusk about a woman who looks after her children on her own and a very angry elephant. A Shona tale from Zimbabwe about a mouse in a house, a Luo tale from Kenya about a hippo that has no hair.

Stories which are set in the past and like folk lore are rooted in past lives and a time when stories were for sharing.

This makes a great book for reading aloud and if you are thinking about folk tales and stories from Africa, it is ideal.
