Who is King? And Other Tales from Africa by Beverley Naidoo
All kinds of animals feature in these ten sparkling stories from all over Africa, by an award-winning author and illustrator. Find out what happens to Lion when he challenges Elephant and discovers who is the real king of the savannah; laugh along with Tortoise as he bewitches the animals in Leopard's work-party with his irresistible music; find out why Hippo has no hair, how Elephant got his trunk, and why Cockerel crows. Then read about the woman who had a mouse-child! The stories are drawn from the rich folklore of Ethiopia, Ghana, Nigeria, Tanzania, Malawi, Lesotho, Zimbabwe and South Africa, and are perfectly matched by Piet Grobler's wonderful illustrations.
Naidoo is unrivalled at encapsulating both story and style within her retellings. Books Trust Ten lively stories from across the continent are included in this unusual collection of stories about animals of all kinds.They are just as enchanting as many better-known stories and they are perfect to read aloud. The stories are perfectly matched by Piet Grobler's delicately detailed illustrations. Parents in Touch Selected as a April highlight for Children's Previews Follow-up to the bestselling Aesop's Fables, from the same creative team. Rich in folklore and complete with evocative illustrations by Piet Grobler, this would make a marvellous addition to any classroom. -- Fiona Noble The Bookseller
