Terrible Tales of Africa, Hardback


The myths and legends of Africa are a rich source of storytelling, culture and history.

Children will meet characters like Anansi, a crafty jackel and a seven-headed serpent.

Some they will be familiar with and some they may discover for the first time! Told in a humorous style but these books are jam-packed with facts about the beliefs of ancient cultures.

A variety of imaginative visual and textual devices are used to great effect.

For example, some stories are styled as newspaper reports, while others are made to look like recipes.

A series of six books, Monstrous Myths will bring out the humour, horror and heroism of some fantastic stories.
