Nelson Mandela's Favorite African Folktales
The vibrant tradition of African folktales — an oral
heritage of stories that predates Ovid — is long, varied, and
exceptionally rich, but surprisingly has been largely overlooked in the
West. Nelson Mandela, the Nobel Laureate for Peace, selected
thirty-two African stories for this extraordinary new book, an
anthology that will present Africa's oldest folktales to the
children of the world. In these stories, we meet a Kenyan lion
named Simba and tricksters from Zulu folklore; we hear the
voices of the scheming hyena and learn from a Khoi fable how
animals acquired their tails and horns. Accompanied by dozens of
enchanting, specially commissioned color paintings, these fables
— culled from African countries as far-flung as Morocco, Uganda,
and Tanzania — present a veritable bible of stories
"universal in their portrayal of humanity, beasts, and the
mystical." Four-color illustrations throughout.
