Synopsis

The Baobab Tree by Louie Stowell

When the gods create a talking tree, they soon come to regret it because it won't be quiet. So they turn it upside down and bury its head in the dirt. This is the famous African folktale of the creation of the Baobab tree!This is a new title in the fantastic First Reading series, aimed at children who are beginning to read. This key series was developed in conjunction with reading expert Allison Kelly from the University of Surrey. Every title has clear and compelling text that allows children to build their burgeoning reading skills and is accompanied by charming and highly appealing illustrations.
