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.
