Tales from West Africa, Paperback / softback Book


This lively collection comes from West Africa, a place 'where stories grow on trees'.

Here are the famous tricksters: Hare, Tortoise, and the greatest of them all - Ananse the spider. The stories are full of larger-than-life characters and situations; and include the tale of how Ananse got his thin waist, how Crocodile learnt his lesson, and how Monkey managed not to get eaten by Shark.
